China, Taiwan to speed up broad trade pact

China, Taiwan to speed up broad trade pact

BEIJING (Reuters) – China and Taiwan agreed to speed up the process of negotiating a broad free trade-style agreement at preliminary talks this week, a Beijing official said on Wednesday.

Taiwan officials aim to sign the economic cooperation framework agreement (ECFA) to slash tariffs in early 2010, but China has hinted previously it could take longer.

“At talks yesterday, both sides said they wanted to accelerate the process of negotiating and signing the framework agreement,” Yang Yi, spokesman for China’s Taiwan Affairs Office, said.

Taiwan hopes the agreement will open the mainland market to its goods and services and lead to closer ties with other Asian countries. Some businessmen, though, worry about a flood of Chinese goods in the relatively small Taiwan market.

Under the pact, tariffs would fall to varying degrees, remaining highest for Taiwan sectors that might lose ground to a greater flow of goods from China.

China has claimed sovereignty over self-ruled Taiwan since 1949, when Mao Zedong’s forces won the Chinese civil war and Chiang Kai-shek’s Nationalists fled to the island. But ties have warmed since 2008 when Taiwan President Ma Ying-jeou took office pushing for closer trade links.

WD TV

WD TV

A HD ­multimedia player in a tiny package — that’s what the WD TV promises.

Compact design

The WDTV is essentially a tiny ­dedicated multimedia player that supports a bewildering array of HD video content in addition to the usual list of music and picture file formats.

Just to give you a taste — for video, the WD TV supports MPEG1, MPEG2, MPEG4, DivX, Xvid, H.264, WMV and, most importantly, the new MKV (Matroska) file format.

Unlike most multimedia players, however, the WD TV doesn’t itself come integrated with a hard disk — instead the device comes with two USB ports, into which you can plug in any external hard disk drive or flash drive.

Apart from the standard ­composite RCA AV outputs, the WD TV offers HDMI output, capable of displaying 1080p video.

That rounds off quite an extensive feature set, and on paper at least, the WD TV sounds like the perfect little multimedia player for anyone looking to view HD content on a HDTV.

In use

Setting up the WD TV couldn’t be simpler, especially if you have an HDMI cable — hook up the power, connect the HDMI cable and then turn on the device.

The menu system is reminiscent of the PlayStation3 interface, as you get a bunch of vertical and ­horizontal scrolling icons which are quite self explanatory.

If you have a USB storage device, just copy the files into it and then connect it to the WD TV which will then scan the files on it and update itself accordingly.

The WD TV supports thumbnails and you should be able to see a list of thumbnails when you go into the video or audio category.

The supplied remote control is a pretty standard affair, with all the usual playback and navigation buttons.

The only issue I had right off the bat is that the infrared coverage is rather limited on the remote.

You really have to point the remote quite directly at the WD TV for it to work and even then the time between pressing the button and the WD TV responding is relatively long.

As far as video playback is concerned, the WD TV worked flawlessly for MPEG, DivX, Xvid and QuickTime files, and we had no issues with those.

Supported file formats: MP3, WMA, OGG, WAV/PCM/LPCM, AAC, FLAC, Dolby Digital, AIF/AIFF, MKA, JPEG, GIF, TIF/TIFF, BMP, PNG, MPEG1/2/4, WMV9, AVI (MPEG4, Xvid, AVC), H.264, MKV, MOV
Interface: HDMI, Composite AV, USB 2.0 Dimensions: 12.5 x 10 x 4.0cm (W X H X D)
Price: RM419
