The Taiwan Tobacco and Liquor Company confirmed on the 10th that the current registration numbers for distilled and brewed alcohol have been cancelled. It was originally scheduled to suspend the production and export of all Taiwan beer export orders in December, with an amount of about NT$1.3 million.

Ke Wenzhe, chairman of Taiwan’s People’s Party, said that the current situation is that both sides are playing tricks, and cross-strait relations have not been good for a long time. We have to think about how to improve it. He pointed out that mainland China should think about it. “Doing this to Taiwan will only make Taiwanese hate it.”

Doing it again and again

In August 2022, the General Administration of Customs suspended the import of citrus fruit, chilled white hairtail (a fish), and frozen horse mackerel from Taiwan to China.

The ban was announced a day after U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan despite China’s warnings.
