For the week of Jan. 21, 2024:
The world’s first major elections of 2024 happened Jan. 13 in Taiwan. Lai Ching-te was elected president, but his Democratic Progressive Party lost control of the legislature.
The result obviously didn’t please Xi Jinping and China.
This week’s guest on thePodcast is New Westminster, B.C.-born Courtney Donovan Smith, joining host Bob Mackin from Taichung, Taiwan with analysis.
Smith is a regular contributor to the Taiwan News, correspondent with ICRT FM 100 Radio News and co-publisher of Compass Magazine.
Plus Pacific Rim and Pacific Northwest headlines.
