Chinese products must be boycotted

Have you ever counted how many of your personal belongings were made in China? If you have not, try doing so. You might be surprised by how much you are unknowingly paying Chinese companies.

The idea of boycotting Chinese products is bound to spark controversy. As China buys about 40 percent of Taiwan’s exports, even politicians who are most vocal about Taiwanese sovereignty might have reservations about a boycott, which would surely provoke a retaliation from Beijing if implemented at a national level.


KMT’s unendearing display

Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) Chairman Wu Den-yih (吳敦義) on Saturday urged the public to give the party another chance in the nine-in-one elections on Nov. 24 to “rebuild a happy and prosperous Taiwan, and a respected Republic of China,” promising the party would strive to achieve an honest government, a robust economy and a harmonious society.

Taiwanese are certainly no misers when it comes to giving politicians a second chance, as long as they can prove they can be responsive to voters’ demands.


People who identify as independents hit all-time high: poll

Both the pan-green and pan-blue camps are losing supporters, while the number of independent voters has reached an unprecedented high, a poll released yesterday by the Taiwanese Public Opinion Foundation showed.

The survey found that 57.3 percent of Taiwanese say the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) and the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) should be replaced by a third party.

Former Sports Administration director-general Yang Chung-ho (楊忠和) yesterday questioned the motives of former Chinese Taipei Olympic Committee (CTOC) member Yao Yuan-chao (姚元潮), referring to a letter Yao sent to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in April saying that a local alliance’s push for a change to Taiwan’s name in the Olympics was promoting Taiwanese independence.


Building a nation that is free from fake news

There have been reports about an oversupply of bananas, pineapples and dragon fruit — which will soon be in season — and collapsing prices. Pictures of bananas and pineapples being dumped have also appeared online. However, a closer look reveals that many of these photographs are either from China, or simply fake.

Spreading fake news about a price collapse could affect consumers’ choices, or even mislead them to think that they are being overcharged. Such fake news affects trading and hurts farmers’ incomes.


Tsai shows signs of Stockholm syndrome

Does the government have Stockholm syndrome? A little more than two years have passed since President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) took office. As well as repeatedly calling for maintaining the “status quo” in cross-strait relations, her administration has recently been promoting the idea of a meeting between Tsai and Chinese President Xi Jinping (習近平).

The government’s words and deeds in this respect give the impression that its strategy has gone badly off course and it is starting to sink.

There is no question that Taiwan will come up when US President Barack Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping (習近平) meet in California this week, former American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) chairman Richard Bush said.

In view of Beijing’s regular statements that Taiwan is the “most sensitive and important” issue in US-China relations, the topic will be raised at some point during meeting between the two leaders, added Bush, who is now the director of the Center for Northeast Asian Policy Studies at the Brookings Institute.
