Opposition releases poll showing support for trade pact to be renegotiated (2014/03/28)
The student occupation of the Legislature has drawn more attention to the trade-in-services pact Taiwan signed with China. That has helped many people better understand the agreement, and over 70 percent of respondents feel it should be renegotiated, according to a poll conducted by the opposition DPP.
When a reporter asks people if they know what the trade-in-services agreement is about, most have trouble answering. But the student occupation of the Legislature has raised awareness of the pact, according to a DPP poll.
The poll found that 71.7 percent of respondents supported the students’ appeal to have the agreement renegotiated. Still, there are many different views of the pact.
“I’m against signing the services pact. It’s good for big conglomerates but workers like us will be badly hurt.”
“I generally support the agreement, but I hope that the government can offer a more complete explanation that will make it possible for more people to accept it.”
But even as people try to form opinions on the agreement, most of the public debate remains focused on political tactics rather than the actual terms of the pact.
