The triangular relationship of Washington, Beijing, and Taipei forged in the Cold War was a key part of the strategic architecture of Asia. What would be the general effect on Asia of re-imaging the triangle as an inclusive, opportunity-driven interaction? This afternoon seminar will discuss the regional and global implications of rethinking the triangle. Our speakers will present perspectives from Japan and Hong Kong-Macau and provide the basis for a discussion of the general significance of a change from exclusive, security-oriented relationships between teh United States, China, and Taiwan.
