CNA: China will ‘lose’ by boycotting Golden Horse Awards: Taiwan

Cabinet spokeswoman Kolas Yotaka (谷辣斯‧尤達卡) confirmed the news later Wednesday and said that if China thought it could punish Taiwan by doing this, it was the wrong move.

“This is China’s loss,” Kolas said, arguing that China should not suppress artistic creation and freedom of speech.

“Politics are politics and art is art. If China restricts its artists and film workers from coming to Taiwan to take part in this grand occasion for the Chinese-speaking world’s film industry, then of course it is not Taiwan’s loss,” she said.
