Abstract:

Source: Focus Taiwan, BMI capita incomes are relatively high (USD--,--- in ----) and rising, while poverty is almost non-existent. These income levels, in conjunction with universal healthcare provision, help Taiwan s citizens enjoy a --.--year life expectancy (above mainland China s --.- and the global average of --.-). Taiwan s education system has improved in line with the country s rapid industrialisation and is often placed in the upper echelons of international rankings. Although Taiwan receives no official rating on the UN s Human Development Index (owing to its lack of recognition as an independent nation), a ---- Taiwanese government estimate based on the criteria of the index gave the island a score of -.---, indicating a very high level of develop- ment and the --th highest globally.

We believe that the DPP is therefore likely to intensify its efforts to strengthen grassroots support as it prepares for the ---- elections. ...Despite its best efforts to build on the momentum it obtained from its landslide victory in November ----, the inability of the DPP to take the KMT s existing seats suggests that the DPP has yet to convince the electorate. We believe that the DPP is therefore likely to intensify its efforts to strengthen grassroots support as it prepares for the ---- elections.

...Rather than looking for a rapid reclamation of what it believes to be its rightful territory, China appears to be attempting to slowly assimilate Taiwan. We think the mainland will continue to pursue cordial relations over the coming years, building on the re-establishment of transport, postal and shipping links in ----. ...
