Md liu was right to introduce a capital gains tax as we all witness that despite the tremendous inequalities of taxation. It is inconceivable that any government continues to back down in front of the banking lobby anylonger considering that profits remain privitised and losses are solialised. President sean chen has a problem to solve for himself as he is behind undermining md liu's brave and very reasonable approach , mr ma must support md liu in order to prove that he wants to truly bridge the wealth gap!

Reunification of the country embodies the fundamental interest of the Chinese nation.
After national reunification the two sides of the Taiwan Straits can pool their resources and make common cause in economic development and work towards China's resurgence. Numerous problems that have been besetting Taiwan would be judiciously resolved within the framework of one China. Taiwan compatriots will share the pride and glory of a great nation with their kith and kin from the other parts of the motherland.
Taiwan question has long been a destabilizing factor in the Asia-Pacific region. Reunification of China will not only bolster the stability and development of the country itself, but also contribute to the further enhancement of the friendly relations and cooperation between China and other countries as well as to peace and development in the Asia-Pacific region and the world as a whole. The Chinese Government is confident that it can count on the understanding and support of governments and people of all countries in the pursuit of its just cause of safeguarding its state sovereignty and territorial integrity.
