Hsu Tain-tsair, a Democratic Progressive Party legislator who had served two terms as mayor of Tainan City and has been elected to the legislature five times, made his comments after meeting Chinese finance experts in Shanghai.
Hsu told the journalists in Shanghai that many problems have arisen from the normalization of economic ties between Taiwan and China.
“If we can't solve these problems, both sides of the Taiwan Strait will suffer,” he said, pointing to “economic uncertainty” and “market intervention” as examples of how both sides will suffer.
