Arlington, Virginia (PRWEB) August 01, 2014
The 2014 conference will consider Taiwan's role in the U.S. strategic rebalance towards Asia, examine Taiwan's defense and military plans for the next 5-10 years, and discuss the arms sales process. It will also examine ways to expand on current models for security cooperation, as well as assess Taiwan's indigenous submarine programs.
Conference sessions will feature panels comprised of leading voices on defense issues from both the United States and Taiwan, and will offer an opportunity for high-level debate and discussion. The Chairman of the US-Taiwan Business Council, Dr. Paul Wolfowitz, will be the conference host.
Rupert Hammond-Chambers, President of the Council, commented that “the annual US-Taiwan Defense Industry Conference is the most important private event reviewing U.S.-Taiwan defense and national security issues each year. A high-caliber group of leading U.S. and Taiwan experts - including representatives from Taiwan’s Ministry of National Defense and the U.S. government, members of think tanks and academia, as well as representatives from the defense industry - will address many important topics and will engage our attendees in an informative dialogue on shared issues and concerns.”
Registration for the US-Taiwan Defense Industry Conference 2014 is currently open. For more information about the conference or to register to attend, see http://www.TaiwanDefenseConference.com.
