TAIPEI -- Terry Gou, founder of key iPhone assembler Foxconn, on Tuesday laid out why he believes his 40 years of experience in global industry makes him the best choice to become Taiwan's next president.

Gou stressed how he could smooth over economic ties with China, saying Beijing's probe into Taiwan's so-called trade barriers on more than 2,400 Chinese imports shows the importance of cross-strait communication.
