Shoring Up the U.S.-Taiwan Partnership

~ Co-hosted by the Taiwan Benevolent Association of America ~

Please join us for a discussion of the future of the U.S.-Taiwan partnership and how to strengthen it both on the economic side and political, security side. On the political side, this may entail anything from support for Taiwan's democracy to removing unnecessary diplomatic barriers to providing Taiwan the military wherewithal and political support it needs. On the economic side, it means helping it find a place in the regional economic architecture and building robust a U.S.-Taiwan economic relationship, up to the conclusion of a U.S.-Taiwan FTA.
