BMI View: The power asymmetry between Taiwan and mainland China is widening as Beijing continues to boost defence spending. Coupled with increasing nationalism and assertion on the part of Beijing, this has helped force the Ma administration to follow a more diplomatic approach to cross-Strait relations. Relative to GDP, Taiwan's defence spending is in decline, and it is gradually moving towards disbanding the existing policy of conscription to establish an all-volunteer force. On the one hand, Taiwan's decision to scale back its armed forces in combination with a significant decline in defence imports may point to closer integration with China. Indeed, in Q114 China and Taiwan held the first government-to-government talks in 65 years, a highly symbolic development that builds on the earlier successes of Ma's government . On the other hand, these cutbacks may signify an increased reliance on a US counterbalance to China's rise.

Taiwan's various defence and security ties with the US reinforce the predominance of this relationship for Taipei.
