A China-based Taiwanese businesswoman raised controversy with her suggestion to Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) Chairman Eric Chu (朱立倫) that, to ensure Taiwan’s future, he should disregard other voices in Taiwan, and just focus on further cooperation between the KMT and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
British-registered Tung’s Co president Tung Shu-chen (董淑貞) was recorded in a video clip making the remarks during a closed-door forum in Shanghai on Sunday held between Chu and China-based Taiwanese businesspeople.
Tung said that there were over 350,000 marriages in China between Taiwanese businessmen and Chinese women, adding that if each couple gave birth to two children and invited the husband’s parents to live in China, “there would easily be 1 million people returning to Taiwan to vote. With this kind of backing, how could the KMT not win the elections?” [FULL STORY]
