According to Voice of America (VOA), Moser said that after Russia invaded Ukraine, more and more foreign companies were worried that the Chinese regime would attack Taiwan by force, so they are asking him how to withdraw investment from China back into America.
Moser told VOA, “A year or two ago, I got hardly any calls, and now I get a lot of calls, and although I didn’t ask them, I could hear from their words that someone in the management said, ‘Move the job out of China.’”
In recent months, China’s military threats against Taiwan have escalated, fueling concerns among foreign companies. Some companies have begun to talk more openly about the risks.
Gordon Chang is a China expert and author of “The Coming Collapse of China.” He told VOA: “The possibility of [CCP] invading [Taiwan] is much higher than most people think. It may come sooner than most people expect.”
Chang said, “War could be full-scale. Even if it wasn’t, the conflict would likely disrupt supply chains across the Pacific.”
He added, “In a conflict-ridden world, only short supply chains are viable.”
He also said that once a war breaks out, the U.S. government will do little to protect U.S. companies in China and Taiwan, aside from issuing evacuation recommendations. He called on US companies not to wait for a warning from the State Department but to act in advance.
