Filipinos unfazed by row with Taiwan

Business remains brisk as tensions persist over fisherman shot by Philippine coast guard.

    The fatal shooting of a Taiwanese fisherman by the Philippine coast guard has put strain on bilateral trade relations between the countries.

    Emotions are running high in Taiwan, where there has been a lot of anti-Philippine sentiment expressed in protests.
