Taiwan Quick Take: Name changes take time: Su


Premier Su Tseng-chang (蘇貞昌) said yesterday that the rectification of the names of state-owned enterprises that contain the words "China" or "Chinese" should proceed one step at a time and should not be changed on the spot. The premier was responding to reports by the Chinese-language China Times, which said that the Executive Yuan is keeping a low profile on its name-change campaign. Su said that many state-owned or state-controlled enterprises bear identical names with the ones in China. The list of companies to be reviewed include Chinese Petroleum Corp, China Shipbuilding Corp, China Steel Corp, Chunghwa Telecom, and China Airlines, according to the reports.
