The article asserts that Taiwan should ease its trade restrictions with China. Taiwan continues to build barriers to prevent its own big companies from investing in China. Formosa Group and other large Taiwanese petroleum companies can build petrochemical plants and major infrastructure projects in China, however, they can only spend a limited amount of funds for these projects. According to Karan Bhatia, the deputy U.S. trade representative in the American Chamber of Commerce luncheon held in Taipei, Taiwan, the country should pursue policies consistent with the evolving strategies of multinational businesses.
