Time for a Taiwan-US trade deal

After Chinese Vice Premier Liu He’s (劉鶴) visit to the US that ended without a deal between the world’s two largest economies, he said that officials from both nations would meet again in Beijing, but made it very clear that China would not be willing to make any concessions on “important principles.”

The failure to produce an agreement was because China reportedly backed away from many of the commitments it had previously accepted, which included changes to its trade laws regarding the well-known Chinese practice of “forced technology transfers”: Foreign companies that wish to do business in China must partner with local companies and share their proprietary information.


Huawei urged to reveal action plan

Huawei Taiwan should reveal information about how it plans to protect its smartphone users in Taiwan after Alphabet Inc’s Google stopped providing Huawei Technologies Co (華為) with vital software updates, the National Communications Commission (NCC) said yesterday.


Bill seeks punishment for Chinese lobbying

The New Power Party (NPP) yesterday proposed amendments that would subject Taiwanese who lobby for Chinese political interests to prison sentences of up to three years and fines of NT$500,000 to NT$5 million (US$15,893 to US$158,932).


Continuing challenge to democracy

After decade upon decade of struggle to overcome the Chinese Nationalist Party’s (KMT) one-party state, martial law and the White Terror era, Taiwanese finally won the right to freely elect their own government. They won democracy.

From 1996 on, they could not only elect members of the Legislative Yuan, but also the nation’s president. This put the future of Taiwan squarely in the hands of the voters.


A ray of hope for equal rights

Taiwan cemented its reputation as a democratic, progressive nation yesterday afternoon, as the Democratic Progressive Party used its legislative majority to pass the Executive Yuan’s awkwardly titled Enforcement Act of Judicial Yuan Interpretation No. 748 (司法院釋字第748號解釋施行法) to legalize same-sex marriage.

The bill was the only one of the three up for review yesterday that would allow same-sex couples to register marriages, as opposed to “unions,” and provide limited adoption rights.


Rights congress chooses Taipei

The International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH) yesterday said that it would in October hold its 40th congress in Taipei, the first time the event is to be held in Asia in its nearly 100-year history.

Student activist Chen Wei-ting (陳為廷) and New Power Party legislative candidate Freddy Lim (林昶佐) joined netizens yesterday in panning comments by People First Party (PFP) Chairman and presidential candidate James Soong (宋楚瑜) on the Martial Law period as inappropriate.

Soong declared his presidential bid on Thursday and his campaign photograph showed Soong covered in mud.
