In 2000, as Chen Shui-bian won the presidential election, DPP replaced KMT as the ruling party and ended 50 years of KMT domination on Taiwan’s politics as a result; and the shift of power between the two political parties has opened a new page in the cross-strait relations.
Two major factors have probably kept Taiwan Strait relatively peaceful in the last 50 years. Firstly, Taiwan did not seek independence actively; and secondly, China did not have the full military capability to take over Taiwan. However, new challenges to alter the two factors have been detected recently. In one hand, Taiwan has been gradually marginalized due to the fact that China has risen to become a world power in international politics and exerted its influence in isolating Taiwan within the international community. The situation worsened when the effects of China magnetism over Taiwan’ s economy began to appear with China’s forging of the so-called “United Front Warfare.” On the other hand, as China has become a military power in Asia, its rapid economic growth indirectly accelerated its national power, and thus, amplified its military threat on Taiwan’s national security. Consequently, the cross-strait relations have encountered an unprecedented challenge.
This paper attempts to explore the background of the four important cross-strait issues by the DPP government; compare these with the factors that influenced other different issues; hope to discover more answers to these issues from my studies and make suggestions as references to the related researches. This dissertation is to take an approach through case study and document analysis. Considering that the economic and trade development is a lifeline to Taiwan’s wellbeing, the writer selects the following topics: “Easing Restrictions on Eight-inch Wafer Factory’s China-bound Investments” and “Allowing the Mainland Tourists to Visit Taiwan.” With regards to political and educational issues, the writer selects “One China Issue” and “Recognition of Educational Qualifications from Mainland China.” The selection of these four specific cases is to examine the background and the factors of DPP government’s important cross-strait policies.
At the conclusion of the research, the writer makes the following suggestions to the DPP government:(1) To strengthen administrative stability and social security;(2) To develop a global marketing strategy, and avoid excessive investments in
China;(3) To widely open the cross-strait tourism, cultural and educational exchanges, (4) To stimulate further democratic reforms within China with the hint of Taiwan experience in democratization;(4) To establish a sound monitoring system on mainland investments on Taiwan and the cross-strait economic and trade interdependence.
