Taiwan may allow bigger mainland stakes in LCD firms

Taiwan may propose allowing mainland firms to take 20 percent stakes in LCD companies in an investment pact, up from an original 10 percent, a government official with direct knowledge of the matter told Reuters Monday.

Taiwan officials said last month the key LCD panel industry would be included in a second round of sectors to be opened to the Chinesemainland investment, as economic ties across the Straits continue to deepen.

"We will have to discuss further on the upper limit allowed for investment; the original proposal was 10 percent but some people thought it was too little," said the official.

Another government official told Reuters the second list of sectors had been submitted by the "Ministry of Economic Affairs" last week for final government approval, and the LCD panel industry is included.

LCD panels had been excluded in the first list of 100 sectors opened to investment in 2009 due to fears about the loss of intellectual property.
