Taiwan, which boasts the world’s 13th largest economy and is one of America’s largest trading partners, enters the World Trade Organization (WTO) this month. On Friday, the School of Public Policy’s (SPP) International Commerce and Policy program hosts a seminar, “Taiwan’s WTO Accession: Prospects for Economic Development Between China and Taiwan,” featuring C.J. Chen, the U.S. representative of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office.

The seminar is held from 10:30 a.m. to noon in the Johnson Center Cinema, and it is open to the university community. President Alan Merten gives opening remarks, and Chen makes the keynote presentation, focusing on Taiwan’s perspectives of the WTO membership and how it will help boost the strength of the Asia-Pacific economies, especially of China. An interactive discussion follows and SPP dean Kingsley Haynes gives closing remarks.
