Taiwanese investors in China repatriated more earnings ahead of Beijing’s implementation of the Common Reporting Standard (CRS), Financial Supervisory Commission (FSC) data showed.

The combined earnings repatriated by listed companies on the local main board and the Taipei Exchange (TPE) totaled NT$4.23 trillion (US$137.2 billion), or 17.73 percent of their accumulated investments in China, valued at NT$2.38 trillion as of June, a record high.

Investors in electronics components and rubber-related products repatriated the most funds, the commission said.
