The US-China economic conflict started with a trade (tariff) tit-for-tat war, but has since extended to technology and other areas. It is increasingly evident that the conflict will be a dynamic and long-term game.
As a key supplier of the global supply network, Taiwan is economically intertwined with the G2 and unavoidably a major stakeholder in the conflicts. In light of this context, our guest speaker's presentation will cover the following topics:
- The development and prospects of the US-China economic conflicts.
- The uncertainties and impacts of trade and technology conflicts on the global economic system and on Taiwan.
- The outlook for the WTO, CPTPP and other regional integration process.
- The possible ways (and limitations) to mitigate the impacts.
