EU-Taiwan: Partners in a changing world

European Parliament, room SPINELLI 1E2 | Interpretation: EN / FR



SM EU Taiwan landscape

Want to join us in person?

Called "the most dangerous place on earth" by the Economist in 2021, Taiwan continues to face mounting threatening behaviour from China, particularly after Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

Europe has made clear that it stands with its democratic friend, Taiwan, and the European Parliament has been calling for cementing our partnership further through a Bilateral Investment Agreement.

This Renew Europe Seminar aims to discuss the benefits of increasing our trade and investment relations with Taiwan, particularly as a semiconductor powerhouse, but also will examine more broadly the geopolitical context and what the EU should do amid the growing tensions in the Taiwan Strait.
