TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Recent survey data published by the Taiwan Research Institute of Xiamen University, reveals that, despite many policies aimed to attract and benefit Taiwanese citizens, a majority feel unwelcome and view their stays in China as only temporary.
In a survey that reportedly received 213 “valid responses” from Taiwanese participants, results found that, in general, young Taiwanese people do not integrate well to life in China.
An Assistant Professor, Chen Chao, and two scholars of Taiwan studies, Cai Yicun and Zhang Suixin, carried out surveys of young Taiwanese people in China to ask about their experiences living in the communist country.
The survey asked questions about how well the Taiwanese students felt they were integrating into Chinese society. The four sections of the survey were “professional or academic integration, life integration, cultural integration, and psychological integration,” reports the Sixth Tone website. [FULL STORY]
