In the late 1980’s, our government lifted ban on the restrictions for people to visit their relatives in mainland China. The both sides of the Straits started to negotiate and the relationship improved fast. As a result; however, Taiwan’s resources, such as fund, technology, and personnel flowed to mainland China in one way, which not only caused massive fund loss but industry circulation and disposition blocks. After President Ma took office in 2007, Chiang-Chen Talks have reached many agreements on joint promotion for investments in Taiwan, deregulation of the related laws on investments from mainland China. Taiwan started to accept the investment applications from mainland China on June, 30 2011, which set up a milestone on economic relationship normalization between the Straits.
Though evaluating and planning in a positive way for the relevant policies on openness of investments from mainland China, our government acknowledged complexity and sensitiveness of the issue. We took cautious and stable measures based on the principle of ‘tight then loose, move then achieve, and expand performance’ so that the policy developed on a steady base and produce substantial performance eventually. The open policy involves in policies and regulations of the both sides and need mutual cooperation for substantial effects. According to statistics announced, the investments from mainland China flowed into Taiwan continually yet with small amounts of money in slow speed since” The permission of the Mainland Area people invest to Taiwan” has been passed in June, 2011. Much has left to be desired no matter the amount of money and applications as far as the mainland China investments are concerned, which mainly resulted in the investment restrictions relatively.
This study believes that the investment items at the first stage were so few that benefits are limited for the mainland China investors even with support of the Taiwan government’s open policy. Furthermore, the investors hesitated and kept an eye on without taking any actions to invest in face of those unfamiliar, complicated and unclear laws and regulations in Taiwan. If Taiwan can make good use of the opportunities ECFA brings, the positive effects on attraction of mainland China investments will be created in the future. At the same time, we need to mull the roles of those investments play for Taiwan’s economic construction in the medium and long-term and expansion of investments industries referring to the results of the open policy. If our government continues to adopt the best practices on mainland China investment policy for the time being in accordance to domestic situation, we may transfer mainland China investments to positive energy for Taiwan’s economic development, create incentives for foreign investments and explore opportunities in other countries so as to achieve the goal of promotion of Taiwan’s economic growth.
