Among the issues to be addressed are:
- How the economic and trading environment of East Asia is evolving, and what Taiwan’s future place will be in that regional environment.
- The development of the Trans-Pacific Partnership as a potentially far-reaching new economic and strategic framework for the region, including the origins and evolution of the TPP, US participation and China’s response, and the implications for the balance of power in East Asia.
- Taiwan’s response to the challenge of freer trade to date, including the impact on US-Taiwan relations and domestic constituencies for free trade in Taiwan.
- The perspectives of other key countries in the region toward the TPP, including Japan, Korea, Singapore, and the People’s Republic of China.
This event is co-sponsored by The Walter H. Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center.
