Recent developments in semiconductors have also attracted much attention. Taiwan produces 90% of the world’s high-end chips, and there is still more international demand, when Taiwanese companies are looking for partners, they naturally think of India, which is also a democratic country. And it has a large number of excellent labor forces. As a priority option to replace China.

Regarding security in the Taiwan Strait and the situation in the Indo-Pacific, Wu Zhaoxi said that China has long conducted gray zone mixed operations against Taiwan. In addition, our country, in addition to continuing to improve its self-defense capabilities, is also cooperating with countries with common ideals of jointly maintaining peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait and the Indo-Pacific region.

Therefore, democratic countries must unite to stop authoritarian expansion. India is an important member of the “Quadrilateral Security Dialogue” (QUAD). In addition, the United States, Japan, South Korea, the Philippines and other countries are strengthening cooperation in exercising freedom of navigation rights in the Taiwan Strait and the South China Sea, fully demonstrating their commitment to the region , Taking the situation seriously, “peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait is related to global security and prosperity” has become an international consensus.

The majority of public opinion does not accept Communist Taiwan’s rule.

Joseph Wu also said that China was spreading propaganda in an attempt to influence the election. Taiwan is ready to share with India its experience in countering cognitive operations in China’s general election in January this year. This can be used as a reference for India’s election response. Countering disinformation can become another step of cooperation for Taiwan and India.
