Weekly eBulletins
Our weekly email bulletins to our members provide comprehensive coverage of political, business, trade, and investment developments that influence the business climate in Taiwan.

Defense & Security eBulletin
The defense relationship between Taiwan and the United States is one that is highly sensitive and often controversial. The Defense & Security bulletin contains articles from a variety of sources on defense procurement, Taiwan's emerging indigenous defense industry, security issues in the US-Taiwan relationship, the Taiwan aerospace industry, as well as issues that affect the cross-Strait environment. This bulletin is distributed on Tuesdays.

General Business eBulletin
The Taiwan Business Bulletin is a rich information resource that covers industry, trade and investment, defense and biotechnology, and general economic and political news. A subscription to the Taiwan Weekly Business Bulletin provides a comprehensive, easy-to-read digest of Taiwan news pertinent to the U.S. business community. Business Bulletins are distributed on Thursdays.

The Council publishes several analysis reports on a quarterly basis, with an expanded report in the fourth quarter that covers the entire previous year. The Taiwan Defense & Security report focuses on defense and national security issues as they relate to Taiwan, and provides up-to-date analysis of events during each quarter, as well as with contact information valuable in initiating and maintaining a relationship with Taiwan private and government entities.

The Taiwan Defense & Security Report, which is distributed to members and to U.S. government employees only, has been published since the first quarter of 2001. Members and government employees interested in receiving these reports can contact us to be placed on the distribution list. Executive summaries of the Taiwan Defense & Security Reports are available below in PDF (Adobe Acrobat) format for your reference.
