譚慎格:簽ECFA 台灣將失原有優勢

〔駐美特派員曹郁芬/華府二十八日報導〕美國學者譚慎格今天表示,台灣如果和中國先簽署ECFA,再和美國簽自由貿易協定(FTA),就等於為中國打開一道自由貿易的後門,讓他對支持美台簽署FTA持保留態度。
譚慎格說,台灣的產業外移現象雖早已發生,但台灣的半導體和高科技產業在兩岸簽署ECFA後,會加速往中國移轉,讓台灣失去原本的經濟優勢,而且白領階級來台灣搶工作機會的情況會增加。

台若被併吞 不符美利益

他批評,兩岸ECFA的談判太神秘,等大家看到最後結果會太晚了。
台灣人公共事務會今天在國會舉辦美台FTA座談會,邀請譚慎格與美國前亞太副助卿薛瑞福出席。

薛瑞福表示,他不反對兩岸簽署貿易協定,但談判和簽署過程應該透明,且對台灣人民有利,最重要的是,台灣要有避險計劃,不能因為ECFA完全依賴中國。


Letter to the Editor: China's industrial might

April 19, 2010

The perception of 44 percent of Americans that "China is already the world's top economic power," while modestly inaccurate, alas is not so "completely at odds with the facts," as Arthur Kroeber would have your readers believe ["Five myths about China's economy," Outlook, April 11]. In pure exchange rate terms, China's $5 trillion gross domestic product is about a third of America's $14 trillion economy. But as most economists would admit, China's renminbi currency is grossly undervalued.

 The Rising Chinese Superpower

By John J. Tkacik, Jr.

Thank you Joan. The last time I spoke to you all here at the Dallas Public Affairs Luncheon Club was on January 16, 2006. Perhaps some of you here this afternoon remember me from four years ago -- I’m afraid that my presentation was pretty pessimistic. I confess, I had a number of skeptical -- if not hostile -- questions from you-all in the audience.

China's cyber-attacks on Google these past several weeks were, sadly, mere replays of state-sponsored Chinese attacks on literally thousands of other American and foreign companies, human rights groups, individuals and, yes, even the U.S. government, including Congress. 


China's imprints all over Copenhagen talks fiasco

January 14, 2010
The Washington Times p. A09

Global warming does not worry China, a fact that partially accounts for Chinese Prime Minister Wen Jiabao's shabby treatment of President Obama at the Copenhagen climate conference last month.

In an opinion column in Britain's Guardian newspaper, one insider was quoted as saying, "The truth is this: China wrecked the [Copenhagen] talks; intentionally humiliated Barack Obama; and insisted on an awful 'deal' so Western leaders would walk away carrying the blame."

China space program shoots for moon

In November, Chinese air force commander Gen. Xu Qiliang observed that "competition between military forces is now turning toward the realm of space, [and] military modernization is ceaselessly expanding into space."
But during his visit to Beijing a few days later, President Obama talked about "cooperation" rather than competition. In a joint statement with Chinese President Hu Jintao, the two leaders called for "a dialogue on human space flight and space exploration, based on the principles of transparency, reciprocity and mutual benefit."
