What a Chinese Blockade of Taiwan Would Mean for Global Business

Beijing considers Taiwan, a democratically dominated island close to mainland China, as half of its territory. When U.S. House Speaker

Nancy Pelosi visited Taiwan this month to help its authorities, Beijing condemned the trip and performed navy drills with warplanes, ships and missiles to display its ability to blockade the island.

On Monday, China’s navy responded to the surprise arrival in Taiwan of a new delegation of U.S. lawmakers by announcing a resumption of its drills. The delegation, led by Sen. Ed Markey (D., Mass.), met with Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen.
