Taiwan- India Relations During COVID-19

COVID-19 has presented a new hope, direction and potential for India-Taiwan relations. Both authors concur that Taiwan’s efficient handling of the pandemic coupled with China’s aggressive stance on both India and Taiwan has ushered a new era of civil-society and people’s support for Taiwan in India. ‘Taiwan-Model’ garnered appreciation, gathered support and filled the communication gap between both the countries through webinars and media-campaigns. Both countries have enough common development space and the new civil-society activeness would likely to motivate if not compel the two governments to work together.
