2012 ELECTIONS: Tsai, Ma present their platform at AmCham meet

CONSENSUS:AmCham said it supported Ma’s and Tsai’s emphasis on stable cross-strait ties, trade liberalization and shift to an R&D-based economy

He said that the institutionalization of cross-strait rapprochement “is probably the most important strategy in Taiwan.”

Ma also touched on his recent controversial initiative of possibly signing a peace agreement with Beijing within 10 years, saying there was no timetable for such an agreement and that a referendum would be a prerequisite before negotiations could begin.

AmCham agreed with the platforms of both candidates, including their emphasis on stability in cross-strait relations, trade liberalization and the TPP, talent issue and a new economy driven by innovation or R&D, AmCham chairman Bill Wiseman told reporters on the sidelines of the meeting.
