U.S.-Taiwan Relations and the Chinese Threat: From Capitol Hill & Taipei
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. With tensions rising between Taiwan and China—exacerbated by China’s recent military incursion and growing concerns over hybrid warfare tactics in the run up to next year’s presidential election in Taiwan—how does the TRA guide the complex interaction between Taiwan, China, and the United States as the 40-year status quo seems to be eroding? Join the World Affairs Council for a discussion with Congressman Adam Smith, a member of the Congressional Taiwan Caucus, and Alex Fan, director general of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office.
