    Most Taiwanese citizens consider themselves to be an
    independently governed island off China's southern coast.
    Taiwan is in a unique diplomatic, geographic, and economic
    position. The People's Republic of China classifies the
    island as a province, while in Taiwan political leaders
    continue to operate and move forward as an independent
    democratic government.

    How does the U.S. engage diplomatically with Taiwan
    and how will future relations develop?
    How does Taiwan position itself in the midst of Chinese
    and U.S. economic competition?
