    No. It's not clear what you mean. Try rephrasing it.

    The context is as written.

    During his visit to Taiwan, Chen's high-profile style of giving away cash to people in need has earned both praise and criticism from the public. The above example brings about two opposite issues.

    No, there are some problem with the vocabulary. You probably mean "brings up" not "brings about".
    "Brings up" = raises. "It raises two issues."
    "Brings about" = causes. "It causes two different issues." I don't think you mean this.

    Secondly praise and criticism are not issues, as such. People praising Chen and other people criticisng Chen are not "two opposing issues". In fact, you could say that it's one issue - the way people react in opposite ways to the same thing.
    It's also not correct to refer to an event as an example, unless it's presented as an example. In the above case, the two sentences are presented as a unit.

    Here's a better version:
    During his visit to Taiwan, Chen's high-profile style of giving away cash to people in need has earned both praise and criticism from the public. This reaction brings up an interesting issue - the way people respond in completely opposite ways to the actions of a community leader.
