Taiwan needs to prepare for Chinese aggression: academic

China will not make concessions even if Taiwan takes a non-provocative attitude toward it, National Chung Cheng University College of Social Sciences dean Soong Hseik-wen (宋學文) said on Saturday, adding that Taiwan should bolster its national defense, technology, economic and trade abilities to withstand Beijing’s attempts at bringing Taiwan into its fold, an academic told a forum on Saturday.

Soong made the remarks at an academic conference held by the Presbyterian Church in Taiwan.


Taiwanese not fooled by Xi

The pragmatism of Taiwanese has been highlighted by a poll released on Thursday, which found that despite China’s increased bullying of the nation and its citizens, an overwhelming majority of Taiwanese support the government’s push for cross-strait peace and reject Beijing’s efforts to suppress Taiwan on the world stage.

The survey, conducted by Taiwan Real Survey and released by the Mainland Affairs Council, found that 87.8 percent of respondents support the government’s efforts to get both sides to work to maintain peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait.

The Ministry of Finance yesterday rejected the Chinese Nationalist Party’s (KMT) offer to pay a NT$864.8 million (US$28.6 million) fine imposed by the Ill-gotten Party Assets Settlement Committee with US dollar-denominated bonds issued by the government in 1947.


Corporate culture repressing Taiwan

Over the past few days, Time magazine as well as Agence France-Presse have reported on the phenomenon of an increasing number of young Taiwanese preferring to work in China. This is nothing new, as Taiwanese have been looking to China for business opportunities for decades.

However, as salaries and opportunities in Taiwan continue to stagnate, this number will only increase, despite increasing cross-strait tensions and an ever-growing and maturing sense of Taiwanese identity.


The Achilles’ heel of PRC and ROC

The Cairo Declaration of Dec. 1, 1943, is often cited as the legal foundation for the People’s Republic of China’s (PRC) and the Republic of China’s (ROC) claims to territorial sovereignty over Taiwan.

The declaration, in international law, was not a binding commitment, but a mere joint communique by then-US president Franklin Roosevelt, then-president Chiang Kai-shek (蔣介石) and then-British prime minister Winston Churchill, and was announced four days after the conclusion of the Cairo Conference on joint war plans.


Nation’s security weakness exposed

Due to an operational error that affected CPC Corp, Taiwan’s (CPC) natural gas supply to Taiwan Power Co’s (Taipower) Datan Power Station late on Tuesday afternoon, large areas of Taiwan experienced power outages as Taipower restricted the electricity supply district by district throughout the nation.

It was not until 9:40pm that power was fully restored, after business owners had suspended their businesses, while others had been caught in elevators, production lines had been closed down and communication networks had been interrupted. The situation was reported by the news media, and opposition parties made a big fuss over it.

Former first lady Wu Shu-jen (吳淑珍), who is paralyzed from the waist down, must be taken to a prison hospital to undergo a fitness evaluation before a decision can be made as to whether she will be incarcerated, Minister of Justice Tseng Yung-fu (曾勇夫) said yesterday.

Speaking at a pre-Lunar New Year holiday news conference, Tseng said the Kaohsiung District Prosecutors’ Office has sent Wu’s medical records to Pei Teh Hospital — the medical facility connected to Taichung Prison — to facilitate the assessment.
