A gradual process of asserting things non-Chinese started when a greater sense of Taiwanese-ness emerged under Lee Teng-hui after the March 1996 presidential election. When opposition candidate Chen Shui-bian became president in May 2000, the push for de-Sinification got into full swing.

How Trump Can Work with World Leaders

There is potential for US President Donald Trump to work with China on public goods such as the global environment and many other issues of non-detrimental common interests. Job creation may be an important link between the first and second largest economies in the world.

Stormy Weather Ahead for Taiwan’s Politics

Tillerson Goes Off Half-Cocked on China

On January 11, 2017, US President-elect Donald Trump’s nominee for Secretary of State Rex Tillerson made several intemperate remarks. Most provocatively he said that China’s access to the features it has built up in the South China Sea is not going to be “allowed.”

Why Trump’s Great Bargain on Taiwan Won’t Work

US President-elect Donald Trump might meet Taiwan’s leader Tsai Ing-wen on her stopover visit to the US close to his inauguration. It seems that the price of Taiwan is going higher and higher, yet could Trump really get what he wants in the bargain?
