Taiwan to review infrastructure opening to China


TAIPEI (AFP) - Taiwan legislators on Monday demanded a thorough evaluation of sensitive sectors in which China has invested or are open to Chinese investment.

The move comes as Taiwan lifts restrictions on investments by China as the two former enemies forge closer economic ties.

Parliament's defence committee passed a resolution from the ruling Kuomintang party calling on security authorities to follow similar moves in the United States and Britain.

"The National Security Bureau should work together with the Ministry of Defence and relevant units to conduct a comprehensive evaluation as to which infrastructure items should not be invested (in) by mainland companies," the resolution said.
