Taipei, Feb. 5 (CNA) President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) on Sunday took on board a business leader’s suggestion that her government ask the Legislature to expedite a bill on monitoring negotiations between the two sides of the Taiwan Strait.

Tsai’s nod indicated that she attached great importance to the suggestion by Lin Por-fong (林伯豐), chairman of the Chinese National Association of Industry and Commerce, Taiwan, which was put forward during a lunch meeting in Taipei between Tsai and Taiwanese business people operating in China, according to participants.

Lin said the president expressed concern about the current conditions for Taiwanese investors in China and how they would cope in the event of a trade war between China and the United States under President Donald Trump.

On their part, the Taiwanese business leaders said they were concerned about the state of cross-strait relations under Tsai’s Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) government, said Lee Li-chen (李麗珍), deputy secretary general and spokesperson for the Straits Exchange Foundation (SEF). [FULL  STORY]
