Look at what the NEW YEAR 2006 have for Taiwan.

This is my prediction.

Taiwan economic sectors affected
(1) Petro chemical based polymeric products
(2) Textiles
(3) Semiconductor
(4) PC, laptop industry
(5) Shipping companies.
(6) New innovative biotech, electronic devices...

With the wind blowing in support of NATURAL PRODUCTS, synthetic producer will shriveling of their profits......(1) and (2) textile and petrochemical will suffer with smaller margins, in addition higher cost in Taiwan such as labour, energy..

high prices in Petroleum sector, over capacity of the industry especially in the NEW MIDDLE KINGDOM...means tremendous year of low profits for these sectors.

we have a new changes in the IT sector...(3) this includes the introduction of the XPbox gaming consoles with multi processors..which will help the WAFER FABRICATION and CHIP MAKING sector.....

yet..the HERALDING of power powerful INTEL processors means that SERVERS will become more popular.....such use of PC for offices will be lesser while SIMPLE TERMINAL machines become more popular....we call that by "Ncomputing"...ie. using PC as terminal......i have seen cybercafe with PC running 36 gaming machine running perfectly!!!!!....and that benefits CHINA who can produce TERMINALS Cheaper!

then we have UNCLE SAM pushing for the US$100 pc laptop...ha ha ha....(4) that'll mean commoditization of TAIWAN'S LAP TOP business....yet component makers such as LCD..will boom as this will mean key components such as PROCESSORS and LCD will see increased quantities but poor poor prices... :(

And (5) Shipping companies will continue to see benefit of EMERGENT CHINA with its tremendous needs for shipping capacity...BUT IT WILL NEED Mr. Chen to be friendly to China......

I know, the R.O.C. with its fear of "hollowing out"..will work hardest..looking forward to many new devices to be produced from (6)......i am all EARS AND EYES...



Wah! 3 negatives, 2 positive and 1 dependent on R.O.C. domestic politics....




Enjoy your choices...Mr. "Scared gal" TwChinese~

Happy New Year!


cheerios!
