In January 2019, Xi Jinping delivered his most important Taiwan policy speech in the six years since he came to power. Xi declared that unification with Taiwan is one of the most important parts of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. In fact, Taiwan must unite with China, and China would not kick the can down the road forever. Did he imply that if a peaceful unification is not achievable, China will take over Taiwan during his lifetime and under his leadership? Now, the whole world is depending on Taiwan for chips. How has this impacted America’s determination to protect Taiwan? I had these discussions with Rupert Hammond-Chambers, President of the US-Taiwan Business Council. Take a listen.
