In “China’s Conduct in the South China Sea: Power Politics Versus Legal Battles,” TBT Vice President Lin Ting-hui maintains that China’s land reclamation projects and other aggressive measures are not only in response to the Philippines’ arbitration case but out of long term strategic and economic thinking. Since China cannot determine the outcome of the Arbitral Tribunal, it attempts to force a fait accompli by changing the status quo in the South China Sea.
TBT Vice President Lin Ting-hui emphasizes in “Factors for DPP Cross-Strait Policy in the 2014 Elections Aftermath” that the DPP clearly recognizes that the party cannot go it alone vis-à-vis China. Instead, it will consult various sectors in Taiwan to seek consensus, and consider the stances of the United States and China, in order to propose responsible policies that account for Taiwan’s political and economic reality and meet the need for effective governance.
