Taiwan’s New Southbound Policy

In the wake of President Tsai Ing-wen’s election, Taiwan has unveiled its “New Southbound Policy.”  This broad “outward-oriented” and people-centered strategy aims to redefine Taiwan's role in the life of the region – to include, but not limited to, expanded commercial relations. How does Taiwan plan to achieve such increased ties with its neighbors to its south? How will China react?  Is there a role for the United States to facilitate this effort?  Join us as our experts discuss the possibilities for Taiwan’s new “southbound” focus.
