This article reports on the decision of the Taiwanese government to restrict local petrochemical companies to invest more than 40% of their capital in China. Companies like Formosa and state-owned China Petroleum Corp. will not be able to invest in crackers and oil refineries in China. But Premier Su Tseng-Chang last week refused to change the limit since China absorbs over 70% of Taiwan's external investments.
