Taiwan in the Global Economy

Public Seminar

Monday 31st October 2011, 2.30pm - 3.30pm, Room V301, Tower 2, LSE

Speaker: John Chen-Chung Deng

Chair: Ruth Kattumuri

While world leaders are rushing to formulate solutions to the sovereign debt crisis and other latent financial woes, the global economy is also facing other severe and evolving challenges, such as economic rebalancing, stagnation of the WTO Doha Round, accelerated proliferation and complication of regional trade deals, poverty and distributional disparity, increasingly aging populations and pressing issues of climate change. Taiwan, as one of the forerunning emerging Asian economies, not only has to deal with these pervasive challenges, but also has to meticulously and properly manage its relations with its neighbouring economic powerhouse - Mainland China. The speaker will present the core elements of Taiwan’s economic strategy that will guide this island economy to navigate through the troubled waters ahead.

Mr John Chen-Chung Deng is Deputy Secretary General of National Security Council of Taiwan. He is the former Deputy Minister of Economic Affairs, Ministry of Taiwan.
