In face of China’s imports ban on mangoes, Taiwan shows resilience by preventive measures of market diversification and nurturing domestic demands.
Analyst explains how China shapes “narratives” as a tactic to inflame Taiwan locals’ sentiments during VP Lai's visit to Paraguay, and possibly, in Taiwan's 2024 Presidential Election as well.
Hong Kong authorities’ request for citizens to report books that “endanger national security” has raised concerns about erosion of freedom and similarities to tactics used in China’s Cultural Revolution.
Despite China’s enormous market potential, the new Paraguay government reaffirms the country's support for the status quo and continuity in its diplomatic relationship with Taiwan.
Lai reiterated that there is no framework nor roadmap for “formal independence” as Taiwan is a “sovereign, independent country” itself.
