China taking Taiwan’s markets

By Lee Wu-chung 李武忠

This is why the government –– based on political, economic, trade, quarantine and food security factors, the particularities of agricultural products and financial management issues, should initiate structural adjustments and upgrading of the agricultural industry before allowing wider deregulation of the domestic market.

Lee Wu-chung is a professor of agricultural economics.
