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?
