Feb 22, 2017 General Comments Off on Presidential Office: Tsai’s cross-strait policy reflects public opinion
A recent survey shows that about half of the public does not think President Tsai Ing-wen's China policy is good for Taiwan. In the Formosa e-paper poll, 48% of people believe Tsai's cross-strait policy is not good for the nation's security while 56% think it is not good for Taiwan's economy.
Two-thirds also believe that Tsai should try to talk with China about a replacement for the 1992 Consensus. The 1992 Consensus was a tacit agreement in which both sides of the Taiwan Strait agreed that they belonged to One China. Each side was allowed its own interpretation of what One China means. The former Kuomintang administration used the 1992 Consensus as a basis for cross-strait exchanges.
The Presidential Office did not respond specifically to the survey. But it did say that its China policy reflects the majority of public opinion. The Presidential Office says it is working towards the peaceful and stable development of cross-strait ties, and that the majority of Taiwan's people support this stance.
