Taiwanese makers to exploit anti-Japan sentiment in China.
Some renowned Taiwanese electronic firms attended the 2012 Forum on China-ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) Free Trade Area, held Sept. 21-26 in Nanning, Guangxi Province, China, and expressed intentions to tap the anti-Japan rancor in China when many Japanese products are being removed from store shelves, hoping to supplant Japanese suppliers.
Many share the belief that Taiwanese suppliers can tap the opportunity in China resulting from the Senkaku Islands issue. A senior executive at a Taiwanese electronics firm indicated that Taiwanese enterprises, with strong R&D and advanced technologies, can find better market niches in China and also diversify operations from China to neighboring Southeast Asian nations.
Walter Yeh, executive vice president of Taiwan External Trade Development Council, encouraged Taiwanese manufacturers to further explore the market in Southeast Asia through attending exhibitions held in Guangxi, China's border province to Vietnam.
