Taiwan: bonds

Taiwan's domestic bond market is well known for its contradictory tendencies. Although the overall market is periodically the second largest in Asia behind Japan's (from time to time edging South Korea's market into third place) the volume of trading done is often pitifully small.
Trading houses and underwriters are lobbying the government to make several regulatory changes to remove those hurdles that have stymied liquidity. The requested changes include: a better physical delivery system, the development of an interest rate futures market, permission to perform bond forward trading and short selling of bonds, and most important of all, the abolishment of the 0.1% bond transaction tax.
