Speaking of Chinese cooperators in Taiwan, there are countless and some of them may be the government officials, public servants, or tycoons. If we put aside the largest potential cooperator, KMT Chinese party, some of foreign investments transferred from China and these could be traced back to 2012. It was the year that the president Ma ( The president who was born in Hong Kong, and was believed by some locals to hold the Green Card from U.S government) opened the gate for Chinese investments, trying to let Taiwan to be fully controlled by China in the form of business.

The OOCL corporation was originally owned by the Hong Kong tycoon and signed the contract with us in 2009, however, the company was merged into CHINA DISTANT SEAS ENTERPRISE CO., LTD. (COSCO)in 2018.

China uses commodities as weapons to infiltrate the free world, such as online shopping platforms, Oppo, Huawei and other forms of aggression.
Any possible means is applicable for the CCP region, even in Taiwan there are citizens using Huawei cell phone in spite of monitoring by the Chinese government. Other Chinese commodities like printer, vacuum cleaner are possible to be embedded its chips inside.

The current law
The current law of investment indicates that the final beneficiary is the determined factor that whether the investor background is Chinese or not, even though the whole process and the money flow obviously provide the evidence that the investment was from China. So, China uses the weak circle to dominate our market sneakily.
It is not that difficult to reform all the industries, but it just takes time and effort; hope most of people can still survive until that time.
