Taipei, July 20 (CNA) The Taipei-based Chinese National Federation of Industries
(CNFI) issued a white paper on Thursday in which the business association warned of the deteriorating investment environment in Taiwan, raising 119 issues and making 272 proposals.
The white paper contains 10 sections covering industry development, energy policy, environmental safety and health policy, fair trade and relations with consumers, tax and finance policy, industrial relations and human resources, international economic and trade, cross-strait policy, intellectual property rights and youth policy.
The CNFI said it is regrettable that in the year since the new government took office in May last year, there has been no improvement in the investment environment facing local industries, which continue to face shortages of water, electricity, labor, land and talent. [FULL STORY]
