On Oct. 11-12, 2013, the Taiwan Democracy Project convened a conference on “The Trans-Pacific Partnership and Taiwan’s Future Development Strategy” at Stanford. The meeting was sponsored by the Center on Democracy, Development, and the Rule of Law (CDDRL) and the Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center (APARC) at Stanford University, and supported with generous funding from the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in San Francisco.

The conference brought together an impressive collection of academics, government officials, and policy-makers from Taiwan, the U.S., and many other countries in the Asia-Pacific region for a frank, wide-ranging set of discussions of the Trans-Pacific Partnership and its potential impact on Taiwan.
