AABS 2022 – Plenary Session: Baltic States and Taiwan at a Crossroads

May 27, 2022

This Saturday, May 28, from 6:00pm to 7:15pm in Kane Hall 130, the Association for the Advancement of Baltic Studies will host a discussion addressing the evolving relationship between Taiwan and the Baltic States.

Diplomatic relations between the Baltic countries and the Republic of China (Taiwan) began in the 1920s, and were revived in the 1990s. Ties deepened in 2021 with the establishment of the Taiwanese Representative Office in Lithuania, and Lithuania’s plans to open a representative office in Taiwan in spring of 2022. The panelists will address current developments and assess future prospects.
