Dr Ma Ying-jeou, President of the Republic of China (2008-2016) came to speak on cross-Strait relations at a joint event hosted by the SOAS China Institute and the Liu Institute of the University of Notre Dame on 30 October 2019.
He articulated both confidence in and commitment to maintaining peace across the Taiwan Strait. His speech stimulated a wide range of discussions with students, staff and other distinguished guests who raised many interesting questions, to which President Ma addressed.
The roundtable took place at the Gateway Building of the University of Notre Dame, by Trafalgar Square but was very well attended by members of SOAS. The seminar was followed by a reception.
