TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — The owner of a Hong Kong bookstore famous for offering
volumes that are highly critical of the Chinese leadership and whose employees “disappeared” during visits to China, has revealed a plan to open a bookstore in Ximending, Taipei City.
In an interview with the Central News Agency, the founder and owner of Causeway Bay Books (銅鑼灣書店), Lam Wing-Kee (林榮基) expressed his beliefs that the topic of China studies has become more important for both the people of Taiwan and Hong Kong due to China’s growing influence around the world. Also he believes it cannot be stressed enough that “Taiwan’s way is Hong Kong’s way.”
Lam, a Hong Kong native, has come to Taiwan in search for the ideal location for opening another bookstore, which is expected to happen next year. [FULL STORY]
