US business group accuses Obama of shorting Taiwan

WASHINGTON, Jan 1 (Reuters) - The head of a prominent U.S. business group accused President Barack Obama of compromising Taiwan's security to promote U.S. ties with China.

Self-ruled Taiwan, which China deems a wayward province, is watching "with increased exasperation," said Rupert Hammond-Chambers, president of the U.S.-Taiwan Business Council.


Liberty Times: Self-salvation year

Taiwan editorial abstract (File 4 of a daily roundup) A rough 2009 is over, but the new year may not necessarily bode well for Taiwan, either, as evidenced by persistently high unemployment and the retreat of local wage levels to those recorded 13 years ago.

While the administration of President Ma Ying-jeou has brazenly cited the recent rebound of the local housing and stock markets amid a global economic turnaround to prove the appropriateness of its economic policies, the reality is that its China-leaning policy has left Taiwan with a widening wealth gap and declining consumption power.


Economic Daily News: Taiwan at critical juncture

Taiwan editorial abstract (File 3 of a daily roundup) 2010 will be a time of trial for Taiwan's government. If it copes well, it will create rosy prospects for the country, but if it does not, Taiwan could slip into an abyss without any opportunity for revival.

The cross-Taiwan Strait opening policy pursued by the administration of President Ma Ying-jeou since its inauguration in May 2008 is now at a critical juncture, with Taiwan facing a number of crucial changes and challenges in the coming year.


Where's the Beef? It's Smell the Coffee Time in the USA

Those of us, who live at ground zero in Taiwan, have long grown tired of hearing pundits and distant observers in USA media etc. judge things from a distance and spout or believe the pearls handed them by their past wine and dine Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) friends. For the past eighteen months we have heard those pundits speak in glorious terms about how the election of Ma Ying-jeou was going to solve all the problems in the Taiwan Strait, harmonize the triangle of the USA, Taiwan and China and allow everyone to become millionaires.


Promises, promises — but where is the loot?

President Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) has pledged several times to divest the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) of its assets and donate the proceeds to charity.

This, however, falls far short of the public’s expectations. Returning these stolen assets to the national treasury would be the correct way of displaying how determined the party is to reform.


Taiwan in 2010: The leadership contest

Taiwan's next year will be characterized by an intensifying contestation for political leadership between the faltering right-wing Chinese Nationalist Party (Kuomintang) government of President Ma Ying-jeou and the Taiwan - centric opposition led by the Democratic Progressive Party.

Beset by the pressures of the global financial tsunami and afflicted by its own incompetence and hubris, the Ma government has suffered a stunning erosion of public confidence while Taiwan's economy suffered its worst postwar performance with an estimated contraction of 2.5 percent that shattered the credibility of Ma's rash and misguided campaign promise to attain an average six percent growth pace during his term.
