Taiwan-China Competition

Interesting article in the IHT along similar themes covered in recent days by The Hive. One should not buy in too strongly to the Taiwan Government's indignation. The more China acts in this area, the more votes that the ruling anti-China DPP are likely to receive. It is important to look below the surface. We continue to believe that the mass exodus of Taiwan's allies will be delayed, on instruction from Beijing, until after the elections. That said Malawi is looking very shaky.
