Legal Thoughts on the Cross-strait Economic Integration under WTO System:Position,Foundation and Principles
- 台研院－已发表论文 
WTO下两岸四地间的制度性经济一体化,本质上是同一主权国家内部不同关税区作为WTO平等成员方之间的经济一体化安排。所谓“国内经贸关系论”与“泛国际化论”,从国际法与国内法的角度看,都是难以成立的。援引“WTO一体化例外”规定,既是其法律依据,也是其现实选择。这种法律定位与依据,对WTO下两岸经济一体化机制与模式安排有着明确的规范意义。实践中两岸经济一体化机制与模式安排选择,应在WTO规则、一个中国的国家主权架构、一体化深化发展要求三者构成的约束空间中进行,并应遵循一套基本原则。The formation and its determining factors of “One country, four seats” in WTO establish the legal position in WTO for the both sides of Taiwan straits and the cross-strait economic relationship, hence determine the legal position, foundation and principles for the cross-strait economic integration under WTO system. The cross-strait institutional economic integration under WTO system is an arrangement for economic integration between equal WTO members who are different customs territories belonging to the same country. To invoke the exception provisions of WTO for economic integration between its members is not only the legal foundation but also the realistic choice for the cross-strait institutional economic integration. This legal position and foundation have definite normative significance for the arrangements of the mechanisms and modes of that integration. The choice or arrangement of the mechanisms and modes of that integration should be made with constraints of the WTO rules, the one China principle and the needs of deepening of integration.
