The UCLA Taiwan in the World lecture series aims to promote Taiwanese studies and disseminate knowledge about Taiwan in a global context and to shed light on Taiwan’s political economy, international relations, and US-Taiwanese relations, as well as than on society, the political system, social structure and institutions. This series is curated by Taiwan in the World postdoc Shih-chan Dai.

Globalization has deepened the interdependence between countries. In recent years, however, there has been a growing trend towards regional integration. Taiwan plays a particularly important role in global supply chains, especially in the semiconductor industry. Promoting economic diversification, maintaining global competitiveness and building resilience. President Tsai Ing-wen has prioritized Taiwan’s regional economic integration and pioneered the New Southbound Policy since her first term as president. This public event will trace the evolution of Taiwan’s southward economic policies from the 1990s to the present day and discuss Taiwan’s bid to join the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP). He will also reflect on the implications of these policies on Taiwan’s investments in China as well as on US-Taiwanese relations.
