Taipei, Dec. 9 (CNA) Vice Premier Chang San-cheng (張善政) said Wednesday that flat
panel industries in Taiwan and China should work together to take on the growing competition from South Korea.
He said Taiwan and South Korea have similar technology in flat panel production, therefore, it is South Korea rather than China that is Taiwan’s main competitor in that industry.
To fend off the stiff competition from South Korea, flat panel industries in Taiwan and China should forge closer links, Chang said.
As part of the cooperative effort, Taiwan-made panels should be included in a trade-in-goods agreement with China for tariff reduction in the China market, he said. [FULL STORY]
