Taipei reveals tariff tactics

“If companies decide to come back to Taiwan to produce more products, we know we need to help them”


John Deng

John Deng, Taiwanese trade negotiator and minister without portfolio, tells the Financial Times that plans are being drawn up to encourage Taiwanese companies with factories on the mainland to return to the island. Tax breaks and a relaxation of land regulations will be among the incentives. The move follows Apple’s warning of price rises due to US tariffs on its mainland China-made hardware.
