Taiwan Defense & Security Report – Q2, 2002

The US-Taiwan Business Council’s Defense Summit in March 2002 was an important event that signaled some changes in the way the US-Taiwan defense relationship is conducted. The conference also raised a number of important issues that will continue to attract our interest over the next few years. This quarterly report will explore developments in the military-to-military relationship after the conference, and present updates on major defense system sales and programs.

This report will also provide some background information on a critical aspect of the arms sales program approval process known as the “national disclosure policy”, and will identify changes in the key players involved in the relationship between the U.S. and Taiwan. Finally, we will identify some upcoming events in China that are of interest to those living and working in the cross-Strait arena.
