Taiwan’s New Southbound Policy: Implications for the Philippines

The Strategic Studies Program (SSP) of the University of the Philippines Center for Integrative and Development Studies (UP CIDS) aims to promote interest and discourse on significant changes in Philippine foreign policy, and develop capacity building for strategic studies in the country. The program views the Philippines’ latest engagements with the great powers and multilateral cooperation with other states in the Asia-Pacific region as a catalyst to further collaborative and multi-disciplinary research between the intellectual communities within East Asia.

In light of these objectives, we would like to extend our warm invitation to a public lecture, “Taiwan’s New Southbound Policy: Implications for the Philippines,” on 13 July 2018, 9:00 am to 12:00 nn at the Seminar Room, Hall of Wisdom of the Asian Center, University of the Philippines Diliman, Quezon City. This public lecture aims to provide insights on the significance of Taiwan’s New Southbound Policy for the Philippines and the Indo-Pacific region in general. Experts from the United States, Taiwan, and the Philippines will discuss issues related to this national policy. The invited speakers include scholars from the Center for Strategic and International Studies, Washington, D.C., and the Center for Southeast Asian Studies of the National Chengchi University, Taiwan. Members of the academe, government and military representatives, and foreign delegates are also expected to attend this event.
