Greater Kaohsiung Photography Association director-general Yang Hsien-ming (楊賢明) said local photography shops tend to be owned by individuals instead of large chains.
Chinese stores are different and they tend to be “straight-flush” industrial chains, Yang Hsien-ming said, adding that he hoped the government would prioritize Taiwanese firms when implementing policies.
A “straight flush” chain refers to a company that controls both upstream production and downstream distribution, without having to rely on other firms.
