  • China is flexing its muscles against Taiwan.
  • Taiwan is slightly bigger than the US state of Maryland, or about half the size of Scotland, and has a population of 23 million.
  • Put simply: China supplies key raw materials such as rare earths and low-end mass-produced electronic components, while Taiwan exports high-end semiconductors and optical components to the mainland to make up for China’s lack of know-how.
