Abstract:

China is set to remain being Taiwan s key trade partner past our medium-term forecast period, with manufactured goods continuing to be the integral commodity firing Taiwanese trade growth. Another factor that could have repercussions on Taiwanese trade is the South China Sea trade dispute that could affect goods transported by sea, which would have a knock-on effect on the road and rail freight modes also. ...This would include plans to promote five major innovative industries (green energy, the creation of an Asian Silicon valley, national defence, biotechnology and medicine, and smart machinery) with the aim of reshaping Taiwan s global competitiveness. While the successful restructuring of the country s economy away from its over-reliance on technological exports (which account for approximately --.- of total exports) would bode well for the economy over the longer term, we note that the rapid push into these industries is overly ambitious, as Tsai also seeks to protect labour rights and uphold environmental standards while doing so.

Tsai has yet to fully articulate her position on the One China policy (where both Taiwan and the mainland agree there is one china but have different ideas as to what constitutes China), leading to somewhat strained cross-Strait relations. With China being Taiwan s largest trade partner and a key investor, strained relations will continue to weigh on trade and investment. ...As an alternative, she once again reiterated that her administration would pursue a new economic model for sustainable development based on the core values of innovation, employment, and equitable distribution. This would include plans to promote five major innovative industries (green energy, the creation of an Asian Silicon valley, national defence, biotechnology and medicine, and smart machinery) with the aim of reshaping Taiwan s global competitiveness.
