Taiwan and the U.S: Shared Strategic Interests

Taiwan and the United States share free market systems, democratic politics, and a huge volume of trade.  The two nations also have shared strategic interests.  Situated at the center of the first island chain that brackets East Asia, Taiwan holds a tactical position of unsurpassed importance in preserving the peace and stability on which Asia’s continued prosperity and democratic progress rest.

On Thursday, November  21, 2013, Hudson Institute’s Washington, DC headquarters hosted a public conference on the shared strategic interests of Taiwan and the United States. The discussion featured four distinguished guest experts and was moderated by Hudson Senior Fellow Seth Cropsey.
