Taiwan Defence and Security Report Q3 2014
Includes 3 FREE quarterly updates

An increasingly assertive and nationalist Beijing continues to be by far the greatest threat to Taiwan's defence and security. The power asymmetry between Taiwan and mainland China is widening, with Taiwanese estimates stating that by 2020, Chinese capabilities will be sufficient to invade the island, even with resistance from Taipei's allies. As a result, the Ma administration is pursuing a diplomatic approach to cross-Strait relations.

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 opens up the possibility for some form of rapprochement. 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.
