Pact will have large impact on public

By Jang Show-ling 鄭秀玲

It is expected that the proposed conference on trade will be a farce dominated by slogans.

Anyone, high official or ordinary person, should look at the specific commitments made in the attachments to the agreement before they decide whether to support it. It will have a direct impact on our jobs and living standards, and it has nothing to with whether you support the pan-blue or the pan-green camp

Jang Show-ling is chairwoman of the Public Economics Research Center at National Taiwan University.
