Resetting US-Taiwan Relations: American and Taiwanese Perspectives September 13 Event

As the U.S. and China continue to trade tariffs and sanctions, the likelihood of a trade war appears to be rapidly increasing. But what the Trump administration characterizes as a “strategic competition” between the U.S. and China also has an element of regional security that is particularly relevant to U.S.-Taiwan relations. Taiwan has benefited a great deal from the Trump Administration’s strategy, and is seen by the U.S. not only as a major trading partner, but a strategically positioned democracy in East Asia. Taiwan will be an important ally as the U.S. considers how best to counter China’s growing assertiveness in the region.

On September 13, Hudson Institute hosted a panel to discuss how best to strengthen the security relationship between the U.S. and Taiwan. Panelists will include Michael Tsai, Taiwan’s former Defense Minister; Parris Chang, professor emeritus of political science at Pennsylvania State University and former Deputy Secretary of Taiwan’s National Security Council; Stephen Bryen, a former U.S. Defense Department senior official and a leading expert on defense technology; and Richard Fisher, a senior fellow at the International Assessment and Strategy Center and member of the Advisory Board of the Global Taiwan Institute. Hudson Institute senior fellow Seth Cropsey moderated the discussion.
