We invite you to join us for an invigorating round table discussion over casual drinks, led by Professor Syaru Shirley Lin of the Chinese University of Hong Kong, on the challenges facing China, the U.S., and Taiwan in managing their complex triangular relationship — particularly given the actions of the new U.S. administration and the emergence of a distinctive/consolidated Taiwanese national identity over the past two decades. Prof. Lin was recently interviewed on this topic by The New York Times: “For Taiwan, a Dilemma Over Identity, Economy and China.”
We invite Syaru Shirley Lin (former partner at Goldman Sachs, founding faculty member at master’s program in global political economy at CUHK) to discuss.
