With the upcoming U.S. presidential election and the 18th Party Congress in China, both countries are facing an important political year. The political climate in the region is influenced by a number of factors, including the U.S. “rebalance” toward the Asia-Pacific, Taiwan’s newly reelected government, controversy in the South China Sea, and a still shaky global economy.
The Carnegie Endowment, in conjunction with R.O.C. Mainland Affairs Council and National Chengchi University, hosted a two-day conference featuring panels of leading Taiwanese, American, and Chinese thinkers examining the state of U.S.-Taiwan-China relations and the challenges in the months ahead.
