What's On

Registration Closed

Cross-Strait relations have been dragged down with the ongoing Sino-U.S tensions. As we enter 2023, Cross-Strait relations have warmed slightly after KMT Vice Chairman Andrew Hsia and his delegation received a warm welcome in Mainland China. But with 2024 being an election year on the island, can the thawing of relations continue?

Dr Tommy Kwan Chung-yin, lecturer and columnist, will present his analysis of how Cross-Strait relations might play out. He will also discuss how Taiwan politics, especially the 2024 election platforms, may impact future Cross-Strait relations.
