Discussion: Power transition in Taiwan

Ma Ying-jeou met with leader-elect Tsai Ing-wen on Wednesday for a discussion that touched on issues including the South China Sea and people’s welfare. As Taiwan faces an economic slowdown and split opinions on how the island should manage cross-strait relations, what issues should Tsai prioritize? Will her government honor the ”1992 consensus”? Can she unite the island, particularly across generational divides? And what are the potential obstacles in ensuring a smooth political transition? Join us for a discussion with Gregory Yingnien Tsang, current affairs commentator; Cheng You-ping from the Department of Public Administration and Policy at Taipei University; and Douglas Paal, vice president of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.
