Missiles and Pandas | Taiwan Insider | March 14, 2019 | RTIThis has been an action-packed week for us in Taiwan. As the nation’s military prepares for the annual Han Kuang Military exercises in May, we get a sneak peek at jet fighters landing on highways, and more. This week on Taiwan Insider, Andrew Ryan and Natalie Tso dive into the topic of Taiwan’s defense. A recent request to buy 66 F16-V fighter jets from the United States prompted a closer look at how prepared the country is to fend off an attack. Plus, you may be surprised to learn that even though Taiwan’s military budget and manpower pale in comparison to China’s, there’s a continuing effort to demilitarize outlying Taiwanese islands. This month, Taiwan opened up Dadan Island -- a tiny islet of the coast of China -- to tourism.
Come for the missiles, stay for the pandas? Today’s #Taiwan will guide you through the on-line response to the suggestion that China gift a pair of pandas to the southern city of Kaohsiung. Mayor Han Kuo-yu says the pandas can be called “Make A Lot of Money” and “Make a Fortune,” but not everyone is buying it.
Also, be sure to catch our report on myopia, and the staggering figures of how many school students in Taiwan are affected.

First episode | Taiwan Insider | March 8, 2019 | RTIThis is the very first episode of Taiwan Insider, a weekly news round-up from Radio Taiwan International (RTI) in Taipei, Taiwan. In our top news this week, hosts Andrew Ryan and Natalie Tso give a background to the LGBTQ rights and same-sex marriage debate in Taiwan, where the legislature passed a draft bill this week to legalize same-sex marriage. Rights guaranteed by the draft bill, titled “The Enforcement Act of Judicial Yuan Interpretation No. 748,” include property inheritance rights, medical decisions rights, and adoption rights for the biological children of a same-sex spouse. Foreign nationals are excluded from the bill. To celebrate Women’s Day, we also have an interview with two inspiring female entrepreneurs, Mae O’Malley, founder of Paragon Legal (San Francisco, CA) and Vivian Chiang, a co-founder at Orbit Baby and Speed Smith (Delaware, US).
