Taiwan’s Participation in Regional and Global Economic Governance  

A public affairs forum by the Taiwan Benevolent Association of America (TBAA)      

10:45 AM - 12:30 PM, August 29, 2015  
Double Tree by Hilton Hotel–San Jose: 2050 Gateway Place, San Jose, CA 95110  

In light of the fast-changing economic architecture in the Asia-Pacific region (APEC, TPP, RCEP, FTAAP, AIIB, etc.), the uncertain future of the WTO Doha Round, the potential contributions Taiwan can make and the obstacles it faces, and the evolving U.S. policy toward the Asia-Pacific, TBAA sponsors this conference to increase public awareness and knowledge.  It will identify the key trends in Asian regional economic integration, discusses the U.S. economic statecraft toward the region, and examines Taiwan’s case (and preparation) for TPP and other initiatives.
