China Taiwan Net, December 21 According to Taiwan's "China Times" report, former Taiwan deputy leader Lu Xiulian live broadcasted on Facebook (Taiwan 4.0) yesterday (20th) with "expanding political opinions & policy buying tickets" "The title pointed out that the economic achievements that Tsai Ing-wen ’s administration is proud of mostly come from inflation (bragging and talking).
Lu Xiulian invited former Nantou County Mayor Peng Baixian to give a lecture yesterday. Peng Baixian emphasized that politics must implement policies, and policies must be based on taking care of the entire population. Some political opinions put forward by politicians are exaggerated, or exaggerated, or out of context, and cover all with not necessarily correct data. This is a logical fallacy. At present, it is obvious that the "new southward policy" cannot replace "westward advancement", and the economic damage to Taiwan is obvious.
Lu Xiulian said that it is a fact that Taiwanese businessmen have returned and no money has come in. As for Tsai Ing-wen's "Taiwan's economic development ranks first among the four Asian dragons", is this really the case? Tsai Ing-wen talked about the third season of this year. This season just happened to encounter the external environmental impacts such as the trade conflict between Japan and South Korea. In this season alone, Taiwan was slightly better. I immediately said that Taiwan was the "four little dragons". Is this bragging?
She also named Cai Yingwen's most proud "New Southbound Policy", saying that Cai Yingwen often said that this was the right direction, constantly advocating that exports grew 14.4% in 2017, but only 3% remained last year. Instead, the southbound region desperately imported Taiwan, and the main imports were coal, oil and other highly polluting products. The "new southbound policy" was to Taiwan's victims.
In terms of the tourism industry, Lu Xiulian pointed out that compared with Ma Ying-jeou, the number of mainland tourists has decreased significantly, and Taiwan's tourism-related industries are almost on the verge of bankruptcy. Her good friend family has been operating the tourism industry for generations, and now it is almost to the point of closing down, "whatever the bitter people suffer is not to use numbers to confuse or comfort each other."
Peng Baixian said that the significant decrease in cross-strait tourism and business cultural exchanges is also the result of the southbound policy. He did not see what major contribution Southbound has brought to Taiwan ’s economic development, but he has seen Taiwan ’s economy damaged. If he persists, it will affect Taiwan ’s overall economy.
