Taiwan, an island just 81 miles off the coast of China, should have seen the second-largest outbreak of coronavirus in the world. Yet, despite lies from Beijing and exclusion from the World Health Organization, Taiwan has emerged as a model for pandemic management. How did Taiwan do it?
Bi-khim Hsiao, Senior Advisor to Taiwan’s National Security Council, joined the show to explain how Taiwan has all but defeated the coronavirus. She also discusses China’s disinformation campaign, cross-Strait relations, and whether Taiwan faces a heightened military risk from Beijing.
Bi-khim Hsiao is Senior Advisor to Taiwan’s National Security Council and a former member of the Legislative Yuan from the Democratic People’s Party. She received an MA from Columbia University and a BA from Oberlin College.
