The 2020 Taiwan regional elections are heating up. The Kuomintang candidate, the Korean Yu team, recently released a list of Tsai Ing-wen's "achievements." However, this list is quite different from the economic performance that Cai Yingwen boasts of. Many of these indicators can be described as "shocking"!
For example, Cai Yingwen has always emphasized that Taiwanese businessmen's funds have continued to flow back. From the initial 200 billion Taiwan dollars, they shouted to 700 billion Taiwan dollars. As a result, it was disclosed by the People's Republic. In fact, how many companies have been dissolved in Taiwan in the last two years?
For the entire year of 2018, more than 30,000 companies on the island were dissolved, setting a new high in the past decade, a 30.9% increase from the previous year. In the three quarters just after 2019, the number of disbanded companies has exceeded last year. According to this trend estimate, the number of companies to be dissolved this year is likely to rise to 40,000. Add up to two years, in Taiwan, "yellow" nearly 70,000 companies!
For another example, the number of factories closed on the island last year approached 4,000, a substantial increase of 45% over the previous year. How much is this year? The first three quarters have increased by 10% compared to the same period last year.
Nearly 70,000 companies were dissolved, and nearly 10,000 factories were closed. Taiwan ’s economic situation is not only boring, it is even cooler, it is not only cooler now, but future trends are more chilling.
In the news of the Korean Yu team, it also includes a number of key economic data such as the number of export orders, manufacturing production value, boom lights, listed company profit data, actual income of people under the age of 30, and companies with "unpaid leave". .
The common characteristics of these data are "negative growth", "recession" and "decrease". In popular terms, Tsai Ing-wen has been in power for more than three years and is "breaking away" for Taiwan's economy, and is creating an alternative "minimalism" for Taiwanese people's lives and wallets.
Facing the challenges and criticisms of competitors, Tsai Ing-wen's mantra is called "Sing Taiwan"; and what Tsai Ing-wen and the DPP are doing is called "Being Taiwan".
Under such a situation, Taiwan's capital, whether economic or political, whether present or future, is losing money both for "Taiwan independence" that cannot be achieved and for the inevitable unification. , Increasingly losing the capital and advantages of negotiation . (Text / offline)
