TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Democratic Progressive Party presidential candidate Tsai Ing-wen attended a forum Tuesday where she discussed economic issues with representatives of seven business associations.
Tsai is widely tipped to win the January 16 election, which would lead her to be faced with Taiwan’s dormant economy after she is sworn in on May 20. Kuomintang candidate Eric Liluan Chu, People First Party candidate James Soong and the three vice-presidential running mates were also invited to appear separately over three days.
Before attending the “Taiwan Economic Development Forum,” she rejected accusations from the Green Party-Social Democratic Party Alliance that her presence amounted to an “oral examination” with Big Business. [FULL STORY]
