Taiwan, China continue to boost ties after protests: magazine China Post TAIPEI–Beijing and Taipei have decided to carry on normally with cross-Taiwan Strait relations following an occupation of Taiwan’s parliament by students, but it is unclear…

Annie Oakley‘s insight:

Despite the fact the students have left parliament, there is a strong feeling that their occupation and protests will have long-lasting implications. Taiwan and China are trying to save face and carry on business as usual. They are adamant that the relations between the countries are as strong as ever.

However, some of the public remains unconvinced. There is speculation that there will be a shift of the countries from allies to rivals which would, ultimately, hurt both countries’ economies.

The student-organized movement may have ended for now, but it will continue to live on in the memories of the people and the government. Only time will tell if their efforts will come to a head or if Taiwan will ultimately cave and sign the trade-pact they worked so hard to prevent.
