In Partnership with the Project 2049 Institute
On November 27, 2010, Taiwan will hold elections in its five biggest municipalities encompassing 60 percent of its population. The outcome of the elections for the mayors of Taipei City, Taipei County, Taichung, Greater Tainan and Greater Kaohsiung are the equivalent of Taiwan’s mid-term elections. They will have a major impact on Taiwan’s 2012 Presidential race with all that entails for U.S.-Taiwan and cross-Straits relations. Join us for a discussion of the results of the elections, the implications for Taiwan, and their importance to American interests in Taiwan and the region.
