The tainted oil scandal has highlighted the collusion between government officials and big business.
In the case of Ting Hsin International Group (頂新國際集團), it does not only seem to have had access to the president, but Council of Agriculture Minister Chen Bao-ji (陳保基) was apparently “summoned” by the firm to a meeting at the Ting Hsin headquarters in Taipei 101, where he met with China’s Association for Relations Across the Taiwan Straits Deputy Chairman Zheng Lizhong (鄭立中).
