To gain acceptance as a member of the World Trade Organization (WTO), Taiwan (the Republic of China on Taiwan) is rapidly resolving its differences with the United States and other WTO members. Taiwan’s entry, however, may be blocked by China (the People’s Republic of China [PRC]), a nation that is not even a member of the organization. So what? Floridians have enough to worry about without being concerned over the politics of the WTO, whatever that is! Right? Wrong!
