The changing investment environment in China, including stricter environmental protection regulations and rising wages, has prompted more Taiwanese businesses to move to other countries and the nation should step up efforts to improve the local investment environment to attract Taiwanese businesspeople to return to Taiwan, he said.

“We expect the plan to light up the nation’s economic outlook and also heat up the trend for Taiwanese businesses to return to Taiwan,” Ma, who doubles as KMT chairman, said after hearing a presentation on the plan given by Yiin at the meeting.

Ma said the nation has suffered from the industry exodus to China over the past years, and as China-based Taiwanese businesses are rearranging their investments, Taiwan should grab the opportunity to lure them back to Taiwan.

While expressing support for the plan, Ma stressed that the government would continue to protect the interests of local businesses.
