The Heritage Foundation's Van Andel Center
As the politics of leadership succession enters the end-game in
Beijing, new concerns arise over the impact of Taiwan's growing
sense of self-identity on the stability of its relations with the
People's Republic of China. Just what is the current state of
relations across the Taiwan Strait? Do Taiwan's domestic politics
have a major impact on China's succession? How does Taiwan's robust
democracy influence the trilateral US-Taiwan-PRC dynamic? Are there
recent breakthroughs in economic and trade ties across the Strait?
Taipei's prestigious cross-party Chinese Eurasian Foundation and
The Heritage Foundation are honored to host a panel of
distinguished Taiwan politicians and scholars from the Island's
three major political parties who will present their separate
parties' perspectives on these and other issues.
