The UP Asian Center will be holding a public lecture, The Current Taiwan-Philippines Bilateral Relations and The Prospect of Taiwan’s New Southbound Policy, on Wednesday, 3 May 2017, 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm, Seminar Room, UP Asian Center, QC. The lecture is free and open to the public, but seating is first-come, first-served and participants are encouraged to sign up.
In a new era of uncertainty and world-wide backlash against globalization and regional economic integration, it is important to re-examine and strengthen the bilateral relations between neighboring countries. Although the Philippines and Taiwan are close neighbors, both countries have long overlooked each other’s importance and the benefits of economic complementarity for their respective economic and industrial development. Representative Gary Lin’s lecture will shed light on the historical background and the current situation of the Philippines-Taiwan bilateral ties. Rep. Lin will also explain and analyze the Taiwan Government’s “New Southbound Policy” and the impacts on Taiwan and the Philippines’s relationship in the years to come.
