Taiwan Leadership Program Press Release
November 19 , 2001
As part of Asia Programs at the Kennedy Schools Center for Business and Government, the program will include practical training for a select group of 13 government leaders and top scholars from Taiwan who will participate in various residential executive education programs at Harvard; applied research on economic and social developments in the region; and institutional exchange between Harvards world-renowned faculty and Taiwans political and academic leadership through workshops and conferences in Cambridge and Taiwan.
The Kennedy Schools Asia Programs is committed to promoting research and discussion on public policy issues pertaining to both sides of the Taiwan Straits. Beginning in 2002, the new program will join a host of other initiatives that span activities in mainland China, Japan, Indonesia, Vietnam and the Asia-Pacific region as an integrated whole. Possible research topics that may be pursued through the KSG-Taiwan Leadership Program include the implications of WTO entry for both the Republic of China and the Peoples Republic of China and scientific-technological development in Taiwan.
