With the Asia Pacific region now making headlines daily, and with the United States choosing a policy “pivot” toward Asia, this speech comes at a time when Taiwan’s relevance in global affairs has never been greater. The Republic of China (Taiwan) has long enjoyed a unique and deep friendship with the United States; just recently it was announced by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security that Taiwan will be the 37th passport to enjoy visa-free status- a move which is expected to increase tourism to the U.S. from Taiwan. Dr. Liao will outline the current position of Taiwan with an eye to the future, focusing on many relevant cultural, political, and economic considerations.
