Punishment? China halts Taiwanese alcohol imports: Report


The Chinese government has reportedly halted imports of Taiwanese alcohol following a series of diplomatic spats between the two governments. The move is seen as a punitive measure against Taiwan, which China considers a renegade province.

The import ban is a major blow to Taiwan’s alcohol industry, which relies heavily on sales to China. It also underscores the deteriorating relationship between the two governments, which have been at loggerheads over a range of issues in recent months.

The latest dispute began when Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen met with US President-elect Donald Trump last week. China views the meeting as a sign of support for Taiwan’s independence movement, and it has reacted angrily to what it sees as Tsai’s attempts to undermine the “one China” policy.

The import ban is likely to further escalate tensions between China and Taiwan. It also highlights the growing economic pressure that China is able to exert on its smaller neighbour.
