Disadvantaged kids treated to free trips
Three transportation companies carried out a project yesterday to offer free trips in the country's two major cities to local children in an effort to show care to them.
China Airlines, Mandarin Airlines and Taiwan High Speed Rail Corp. jointly sponsored 110 socially disadvantaged children to travel between Taipei City and the southern port city of Kaohsiung City by airplane and high speed rail, the latter of which has gained in popularity with the general public since its inauguration in January.
The places visited by the children included several tourist attractions, such as the Taipei 101 tower, Taipei Zoo and the Maokong Gondola, as well as Kaohsiung Harbor and the Dream-Mall shopping mall.
TAITRA seminar
The Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) will hold a seminar at its office in the northern city of Hsinchu January 29 to help local businesses with interests in China to tackle China's new tax law, a TAITRA spokesman said yesterday.
According to the new law passed by China's National People's Congress in March 2007, preferential corporate income tax breaks for foreign investors in China will be sharply reduced.
For Taiwanese business people in China, the question of how to avoid risks and how to apply the new tax regulations after the law takes effect January 1, 2008, are the main concerns, the TAITRA spokesman said.
Ni Wei, the only lawyer in Taiwan who is certified to practice in China as a lawyer and as a public accountant, will deliver a speech and offer tips on relevant issues at the seminar, the spokesman said.
