The European Union’s “Global Gateway” is a major plan to support the development of infrastructure around the world. While boasting an impressive budget of €300 billion, the Global Gateway is first and foremost, a geopolitical strategy. The case of Taiwan offers a unique perspective to assess the various implications of Europe’s approach to connectivity in East Asia. This was the focus of a discussion with distinguished representatives of different EU institutions and from Taiwan’s government and private sector.
