Taiwan wants overseas offices to act tougher against name changes

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) said Tuesday it had told all of its overseas representative offices and embassies to act tougher as soon as they heard of unfair changes of Taiwan’s name on business and other websites.

China has demanded multinational corporations, and especially airlines, change references to Taiwan on their websites, mainly by adding the word “China” or “Chinese” to imply that Taiwan is not a separate independent country.

In the latest incident, Air India caved in to Chinese demands by changing Taiwan’s name on its business website. When Taiwan’s office in New Delhi expressed its displeasure with the Indian government, the latter replied it would give advice if corporations asked for it, but it could not determine what those companies did in the end, Lee said.
