Wilson Center on Taiwan's Econ, Dec 13

Wilson Center Event, including the excellent Peter Chow:

Staying Ahead of the Economic Curve:
Taiwan and Its Rivals in East Asia and Beyond

December 13, 2012 3:30 to 5:30 pm

Technology dominates Taiwan’s economy, and the sector is the bedrock of the nation’s growth engine. Yet companies across the Taiwan are facing numerous challenges, not least increased competition from China, Vietnam, and beyond, while the profitability of the technology sector at large remains in question. What policies, if any, can Taiwan pursue to ensure that it remains a technological powerhouse? Can the government do more to improve its investment climate, or has it already fallen behind Singapore and other rivals? How will the ongoing territorial disputes in northeast Asia impact foreign investors’ interests in the region?
