Taiwan’s Trade Dilemma and the Outlook for U.S.-Taiwan Economic Relations

Taiwan’s diplomatic, economic, and security relations with the United States has come under close scrutiny since the presidency of Donald Trump, often with mixed messages. On the one hand, the U.S. Treasury continues to place Taiwan as well as Japan, South Korea, Switzerland, Germany, and the PRC on the watch list of potential currency manipulators, as President Trump continues to pursue policies that would lead to a decline in the U.S. trade deficit. On the other hand, however, the White House has pressed once again for Congressional approval to sell arms to Taipei. Join us for a discussion on U.S. expectations for Taiwan’s economy as an anchor for regional security, and prospects for resolving the U.S.-Taiwan trade imbalance in the longer term.
