The China-Taiwan Summit: Has Anything Really Changed?

Chinese Communist Party General Secretary Xi Jinping met Taiwan President Ma Ying-jeou in Singapore on November 7, 2015. The summit is the first meeting of its kind in 70 years. Although cross-strait relations have improved over the past eight years, Mr. Ma’s Beijing-friendly policies are unpopular with the island’s electorate and especially among younger voters. Xi Jinping said in 2013 that "political disagreements… cannot be passed on from generation to generation," but the next generation of Taiwanese wants to do precisely that. In this teleconference, three experts in Chinese and Taiwanese diplomacy discussed the motives and outcomes of the summit for the PRC, Taiwan, and U.S.-China relations.
