Newly elected President Ma Ying-jeou of Taiwan faces a series of difficult tasks.  He needs to restore a frayed relationship with the United States, Taiwan's most dependable ally while lessening tensions with China, now Taiwan's number one trading partner as well as the chief source of threat.  At the same time, the Taiwanese economy needs re-charging and careful management as fallout from the sub-prime crisis spreads to the island nation.  Join us as our panel of experts - just back from discussions in Taiwan - analyze these and other critical issues ahead.
