A Conversation on Taiwan with Rep. Adam Smith and Director General Chen
Perkins Coie LLP / Zoom
1201 3rd Ave, Seattle, WA 98101, USA
In April 1979, Congress enacted the Taiwan Relations Act (TRA), which laid the framework for Washington’s robust but unofficial relationship with Taiwan, including a strong commitment to Taiwan’s security. China’s recent aggressive behavior—including mass atrocities in Xinjiang, bloodshed at the Sino-Indian border, and trampling Hong Kong’s autonomy—has contributed to growing concern about Taiwan as China’s military intimidation intensifies. With the U.S.-China relationship continuing to be defined by increasing tension, can the United States afford to maintain its policy of strategic ambiguity around Taiwan? Can it afford not to? And what are the lessons to be drawn from Ukraine? Join the World Affairs Council on March 22nd from 5:30-6:30 pm PST for an in-person discussion with Congressman Adam Smith, chairman of the House Armed Services Committee and a member of the Congressional Taiwan Caucus, and Director General Daniel Kuo-ching Chen of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Seattle.
