India and Taiwan in a Post-ECFA Ecosystem

  • Joe Thomas Karackattu
Part of the SpringerBriefs in Economics book series (BRIEFSECONOMICS)


The first segment of this study laid out the policy shifts that have occurred in the context of Cross-Strait ties, specifically outlining the economic and political circumstances that the post-ECFAECFA ecosystem could present to Taiwan. As discussed earlier, it is hoped that normalization of relations between Taiwan and Mainland China would set the stage for more trade liberalization agreements with other trading partners—and not be limited to an ECFA-only framework.
