Taiwan’s New Diplomacy
This program has been cancelled
Andrew Li-Yan Hsia, Deputy Foreign Minister, Taiwan
Since assuming office in May 2008, Taiwan’s President Ma has sought rapprochement with mainland China. His administration has called for a diplomatic truce to the struggle between Taipei and Beijing to encourage nations to switch diplomatic recognition. Taipei has also opened up direct trade, transportation and mail links. Taiwanese Deputy Foreign Minister Hsia will speak of this new diplomatic approach, which involves seeking win-win solutions with the mainland, while preserving Taiwan’s sovereignty, democratic institutions, and security. He will address implications for the United States, Taiwan’s strongest ally, for this new approach.
