The Conversation:

Dr. Frank Ying is professor of economics and dean of international affairs at National Sun Yat Sen University.  We talked about Chinese students coming to Taiwan universities, international students, the over-supply of universities, and the internationalization of higher education in Taiwan.

Questions:

What do you think about President Ma announcing he wants to really attract other Asia Pacific students to come to Taiwan because of low tuition fees and to study Mandarin?[audio:http://www.thetaiwanchannel.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/FrankYing0071.mp3|titles=FrankYing0071]

Do you see that (tuition increases) happening here in Taiwan?[audio:http://www.thetaiwanchannel.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/FrankYing0073.mp3|titles=FrankYing0073]

What does that mean for the statement of trying to make Taiwan a hub for Asia Pacific, if you raise the tuition, do you think that would turn those potential students off?[audio:http://www.thetaiwanchannel.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/FrankYing0074.mp3|titles=FrankYing0074]
