   Q: It doesn’t seem that way. I think it was China’s Taiwan Affairs Office, part of the State Council, which said that your speech was an incomplete exam. There is no public indication that they appreciated your position. Are you, the president, in touch with your counterparts in the Chinese government?

   A: Different levels of the government have different ways of communicating with their counterparts in China. At this stage, I cannot go into too much detail.

  Q: Do you feel you are closing the gap between Taiwan and the People’s Republic of China?

   A: Over this past period we have handled relations with China very carefully. We do not take provocative measures, we make sure that there are no surprises, and we hope that through channels of communication, we can gradually build up trust.

   Q: You represent many of the youth who think of themselves as being Taiwanese, not Chinese. They are more pro-independence than the older generation. As president, you want to maintain cross-strait relations for stability, but at the same time, you must keep your followers happy. How do you balance these factors?

   A: Different generations and people of different ethnic origins have different views on China. But they all agree on one thing. That is democracy.

   Q: Is it fair that Washington has considered Taiwan an entity, not a country, since 1979, when the United States changed sides and recognized the People’s Republic of China (with its capital in Beijing)  in lieu of the Republic of China in Taiwan (with its capital in Taipei)  as China?

   A: I am not clear what the U.S. means when they use the term entity. For us here in Taiwan, we believe that we are a country, a democratic country.

  Q: So isn’t it unfair that Taiwan is not recognized in the world?

  A: It is indeed unfair.

   Q: American readers would find it hard to understand that you, as a Taiwanese president, are only allowed to come to the United States for 48 hours, and then only if it is a transit stop.

  A: Indeed.

  Q: There has reportedly been a drop-off in tourists from the mainland. Will that hurt your tourist industry?

  A: We hope to have a more diverse source of tourists.

   Q: China could bring more pressure on Taiwan if it chose to. They could frighten away your diplomatic allies by threatening to weaken your bonds with them. Are you worried about that?

   A: If they do take economic measures to apply pressure to Taiwan, they will have to think about the price that they are going to pay. Because the surrounding countries will be looking very carefully at what measures China will take against Taiwan.

  Q: So you think as far as your alliances go, they will stay as they are today?

   A: We will do everything we can do to maintain those relations and make sure that our diplomatic allies feel that having diplomatic relations with Taiwan is worthwhile.

   Q: Your predecessor, President Ma Ying-jeou, wanted to buy 66 F-16s from the United States. Even though 47 senators wrote in support of his request, nothing happened. Do you intend to repeat that request?

   A: At the current stage what we need are surface ships, submarines and air defense systems, as well as defensive capabilities in terms of cybersecurity.

  Q: I think Ma also asked for diesel submarines and got nowhere. Will you repeat that request?

  A: We are trying to develop our own [submarines].

  Q: When it comes to the U.S. election, Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump  who would be better for Taiwan?

  A: As the leader of a different country, it is not very wise for us to comment on the presidential election in the U.S.

   Q: I understand that the focus of your program is domestic  that you want to raise wages, to give people more time off. But with a growth rate under 1 percent, how can you spur the economy while delivering increased social services?

   A: There is no panacea for this. I think Taiwan’s economy needs an overall structural readjustment. Our new model focuses on innovation and research. This is different from our growth model in the past, which was centered on the manufacturing industry.

  Q: Isn’t China your No. 1 trading partner?

   A: China is still our largest trading partner; however, complementarity between our economies is decreasing. We had the ability to organize a manufacturing process, and then we moved our manufacturing capability to China to make use of their labor pool. But now the situation is very different. [Chinese] labor costs are increasing, and China has their own capability.

  Q: So China has become a competitor of Taiwan?

  A: They are more and more our competitors.

   Q: I saw that you expressed disappointment over the ruling by the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague on the South China Sea. It held that Taiping Island, which you claim as part of Taiwan, is a rock, not an island, and thus cannot enjoy an exclusive economic zone. Will you abide by the ruling?
