Taiwan Election 2012: Outcomes and Implications for US-Taiwan-China Ties
This talk will assess the results of the January 14 Taiwan elections and their potential impact on the triangular relationship.
Cross-strait trade now exceeds $100 billion dollars a year. Products such as Apple’s iPhone illustrate how connected the economies have become (designed in California, engineered in Taiwan, and manufactured in China, consumed worldwide). Will the election affect cross-strait ties? The U.S. recently announced a major $6.5 billion arms sale to Taiwan. How might U.S.-Taiwan ties be affected by the election outcomes?
