  • Abstract The United State had a great influence on Taiwan’s trade. However, the period during the George W. Bush administration was significant for Taiwan, partially because of increasing role of China in Taiwan’s trade structure. Analyzing the first decade of the 21st century, it is impossible to ignore such a crucial event for Taiwan as the WTO accession. Despite of the fact that the U.S. has always been an important trade partner of Taiwan, these two countries had several disagreements in such spheres as intellectual property rights (IPR) protection and agriculture. During George W. Bush's presidency, Taiwan’s government had succeeded in reforming the regulations to protect the intellectual property rights, and as a result Taiwan was removed from the section 301 watch list. However, completing the WTO commitments to liberate the agricultural market, Taiwan didn’t reach a consensus with the U.S. in the distribution of rice quota and the opening market for beef and pork imports from the United States.
    This thesis analyses the main issues of the U.S.-Taiwan trade relations in order to understand which were resolved and which issues remain. To examine the specific of Taiwan-U.S. trade relations Chapter 2 focuses on the origin of Taiwan-U.S. relations and Taiwan’s economic development as the basis for the further development in the 21st century. While Chapter 3 and Chapter 4 focuses on the main events and changes during the 21st century.
