Historically, relations between Beijing and Taipei governments have been characterized by limited contact, tensions, and instability. After decades of hostile intentions and angry rhetoric, Chinese-Taiwanese relations started improving in the 1980s. Party-to-party talks between have since been resumed and semi-official negotiations through organizations representing the interests of their respective governments are being scheduled.
However, there is still both disagreement and confusion about what Taiwan is, and even what it should be called. This lecture provides you with the perspective of Taiwanese Ambassador Daniel T.C. Liao.
Daniel T. C. Liao is a Representative of the Taipei Mission in Sweden, which works to maintain and promote bilateral relations between Taiwan and Sweden. Daniel has a doctor’s degree in business administration from the Pacific States University in the USA and has since then served in several high positions, all regarding relations between the Republic of China (Taiwan) and other parts of the world.
