US visa-waiver not all good news

By Wu Kuo-wei 吳國維

Therefore, before traveling to a country where we are supposed to enjoy visa-free entry, we should check the various provisions that apply.

Because of the simple approach Taiwanese politicians take toward promoting Taiwan politically, the visa-free issue has been received well. However, many of the sacrifices and prices of this status have been ignored. If our politicians just keep going after short-term benefits or make policy decisions based on some shallow outlook, Taiwan’s future outlook is worrying.

Wu Kuo-wei is the chief executive of the National Information Infrastructure Enterprise Promotion Association.
