Abstract:

Tsai Ing-Wen government of Taiwan which was born in 2016 has been promoting "New Southbound Policy" very vigorously. It contains economic and trade cooperation with ASEAN, countries in South Asian and Oceania. New Southbound Policy which inherited Southbound Policy of the former regimes of Taiwan is not only an economic and trade policy, but also involves various collaborations, such as joint development of resources, cultural and educational exchange, and personnel training, etc. The aim of New Southbound Policy of Taiwan government is to reduce economic influence of China and to maintain national autonomy through the diversification of international exchanges. The "Sunflower Movement" which happened in 2014 has something in common with the New Southbound Policy: both reflect the Taiwanese people's consciousness of the anti economical subordination to Mainland China. The ostensible causes of Sunflower Movement are ruling Kuomintiang's unilateral move in the Legislative Yuan to force the CSSTA and anger of Taiwanese publics about it. On the other hand, we can say that the fundamental reason of it is general wariness of Taiwanese who object to receive the autocratic system of Mainland China.
