The past week has seen very significant local elections take place in Taiwan, with the Kuomintang (KMT), which literally means the Chinese nationalist party, suffering heavy defeats. The main opposition party, the Democratic Progress Party (DPP), are widely seen as the big winners of these elections.

What these elections mean for China and international relations has been examined in multiple smart articles, which are linked below. Other articles linked this week include a further look at the China-Australia FTA, an examination of whether Australia has a China policy, a debunking of how large a role China’s SOEs allegedly play in the economy, an excellent interview on ethnic policies in China and two articles questioning whether China’s growing dominance in Asia both economically and geopolitically is assured.
