Description: In the backdrop of disruptions to international supply chains and national economies from the COVID-19 pandemic, Taiwan’s economic growth and success stand in stark contrast. As Taiwan’s economy thrives, led by its superlative response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the success of firms like TSMC, how does Taiwan’s involvement in the global economy change? Meanwhile, heightened hostility in US-China relations looms large, and the United States seeks to address security vulnerabilities in its exposure to Taiwanese semiconductors. How do Taiwan’s businesses navigate greater US-China-Taiwan geopolitical forces? This panel invites three experts from academia, journalism, and industry to discuss Taiwan’s business landscape during a turbulent pandemic world and the post-pandemic future.
