Taiwan’s New Leadership: Impact on Regional Business, Investment and Security
Trade & Investment
12:00-1:45pm. The likely victory of Tsai Ing -wen in Taiwan's presidential election on January 16 and the return to power of the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) will alter Taiwan's domestic and commercial priorities and the island's approach to technology policy, energy policy and cross-border investment. A DPP administration will also affect attitudes toward inbound and outbound investment with China and what will be a huge push for Taiwan to join the Trans-Pacific Partnership. How Tsai handles China will impact investment flows and businesses operating in Taiwan and the region.
Tsai, to ease worries about an uptick in tension with her election to the presidency, has vowed to keep the cross-Strait relationship at 'status quo." Taiwan remains an essential supply chain partner even in the face of China's growing strength and the emergence of the 'red supply chain." Are ever-closer economic ties with China inevitable or will Tsai chart a more independent approach in her economic policy? If the latter, what will be the impact on multinational companies invested on both sides of the Strait? First 15-20 minutes is for networking Sandwiches & beverages included
