Taiwan is set to sign a free trade deal with China, in a move that will bring the two sides the closer than they have been in decades.

Ma Ying-jeou, the island's president, believes it will pull the island out of the economic doldrums and help end its international isolation.

The trade pact has been met with significant opposition, but as Al Jazeera's Steve Chao reports, Ma is determined to press on.
