This all-day event will feature keynote addresses by members of Congress and government officials. It will be organized around four engaging panel discussions on a range of challenging and timely issues pertinent to the future of US-Taiwan relations.

As GTI's flagship event, which we hope will provide an annual venue for convening experts on US-Taiwan policy, our approach is comprehensive and systematic. At this year's event, our panels will cover economics and trade, as well as security and defense.
