Hi Everyone,

Harvard Fairbank Center will be holding a video conference with
President Ma Ying-Jeou to discuss his reflections since his
inauguration two years ago. Please read on for more details.

President Ma Ying-jeou’s Reflections at Mid-Term

President Ma Ying-jeou of the Republic of China (Taiwan) will address
Harvard faculty and students live via video transmission from Taipei.
A faculty panel will engage President Ma in discussion on the
challenges of his presidency and prospects for Taiwan and the region,
and questions will be accepted from the audience.

Ma Ying-jeou became president of the Republic of China in May 2008 and
chairman of the Kuomintang party in October 2009. He previously served
Taiwan as justice minister from 1993 to 1996, mayor of Taipei from
1998 to 2006, and chairman of the Kuomintang from 2005 to 2007. He
received his law degree from National Taiwan University, his LL.M.
from New York University Law School, and his S.J.D. from Harvard Law

Since his inauguration two years ago, President Ma has placed
constructive cross-strait relations and “flexible diplomacy” at the
core of government policy. Through this new approach, the two sides of
the Taiwan Strait have gradually engaged with each other and an
Economic Cooperation Framework Agreement (ECFA) is developing. The
world continues to watch with great interest the rapid development of
cross-strait and international relations involving Taiwan. President
Ma will provide his reflections at mid-term and comment on regional
peace and prosperity.
