Conference Report

This year, as the world has finally begun to see a promising end to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Yushan Forum explored the prospects of Revitalizing, Reorienting, and Reconnecting. Within this theme, significant attention was given to pragmatic steps towards recovery, cross-sectoral synergy through the public-private-people partnership (PPPP) model and future expectations of like-minded countries in the region. This year’s Yushan Forum invited 35 international leaders, new-generation young leaders, business representatives, and civil society leaders from New Southbound countries and other nations to speak in the forum's various sessions.


The forum demonstrated the fruitful results and determination of Taiwan's New Southbound Policy in empowering regional partnerships and cooperation. Two sessions were held with the themes of "Reorienting Asian Economics Framework through Resilience Building” and "Reconnecting Asia with a New Ecosystem of Partnership through Societal Actions," followed by a regional roundtable dialogue as the finale. Following this year's Yushan Forum, a high-level Inaugural Taiwan-India Dialogue was jointly held by the Taiwan-Asia Exchange Foundation and the Observer Research Foundation of India.
