Despite their controversial political relationship, Taiwan and China remain very much entwined economically. This timely volume explores the complicated state of economic and trade relations between the two countries, meticulously unraveling the issue’s various threads and presenting an authoritative breakdown of a complex and fascinating economic linkage.

Armed with up-to-date original research, contributors offer expert analyses on a variety of issues relating to economic integration between Taiwan and China. These include trade agreements, foreign direct investment, outsourcing of manufacturing and migration of industry, integration of banking and financial markets, and the recent shift toward a more integrated economy with Greater China. The considerable political tension between the two countries is also discussed, as are the economic relationships with neighboring East Asian countries such as Japan and others. In the final chapter, editor Peter C.Y. Chow discusses Taiwan’s policy options for the future and offers his expert recommendations for speeding Taiwan’s achievement of globalization and widening its ultimate political choices.

Professors and students of global economics and East Asian studies will no doubt find this a fresh and invaluable contribution to the literature.
