Tsai details DPP’s cross-strait policies

GOING GLOBAL:Tsai Ing-wen said Taiwan would treat China the same way that it treats the US or the EU, and walk ‘toward China through the international community’

Taiwan should maintain its economic independence at all times and make sure it is capable of monitoring Taiwanese investment in China, she said.

Meanwhile, Taiwan Solidarity Union (TSU) Chairman Huang Kun-huei (黃昆輝) said in a press release yesterday that his party — an ally of the DPP — opposes continued implementation of the ECFA, which he said was “a chain that will eventually constrain Taiwan’s economy.”

“The TSU stands by its firm position that the ECFA should be terminated,” Huang said.

Tsai’s plan to place the ECFA under an international framework was acceptable and praiseworthy, said Hsu Chung-hsin (許忠信), who is on the TSU’s legislator-at-large list, but any agreement that has not been screened and authorized by the legislature should not be implemented in a democratic country such as Taiwan.
