Therefore, the economic rapprochement with Russia was regarded as being politically motivated. This project aims to empirically test this hypothesis by the use of the gravity model of trade, in order to simulate the trade potential between Russia and Taiwan; and
thus determine the rational behind Taiwan’s trade strategy in... (More)
