Taipei, Nov. 6 (CNA) Taiwan’s business leaders said on Sunday that if Donald Trump is elected U.S.
president on Nov. 8, export-oriented Taiwan could be impacted by his anti-China stance.
The polls have shown that Republican Party candidate Trump and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton are in a very tight race.
Lin Bo-feng (林伯豐), head of the Chinese National Association of Industry and Commerce, said that Taiwan and its relations with the three economic powerhouses of the United States, Japan and China will be directly impacted.
In contrast with Trump’s China bashing rhetoric, Clinton has not been as antagonistic to Beijing, Lin said. If Trump is elected and economic relations between the United States and China turn bad, it would have a knock-on effect on Taiwan. [FULL STORY]
