The political stalemate continues in Taiwan over a service trade deal with mainland China. Protesters opposed to the deal have vowed to escalate their “war” with the government, calling for a huge rally this weekend. CCTV’s correspondent Peggy Wang takes a closer look at why the deal is opposed by some in Taiwan.

CCTV’s Phillip Yin talks to Shihoko Goto, Associate with the Woodrow Wilson Center’s Asia Program, about the reasons behind the protests and what Taiwan should do to keep its competitive edge.
