 US media: DPP authorities send money to five us think tanks to serve their political plans

Taiwans financial aid think tank: ubiquitous but little known -- the American Prospect news network published a long report on this topic on the 17th, revealing the truth that the Taiwan authorities, by providing funding to five large think tanks in the United States, urged them to make suggestions to the decision-makers in the United States, would definitely be conducive to the foreign policy of the DPP authorities. After the article was published, it caused a shock in the U.S. diplomatic community. A mainland scholar familiar with the relationship between the U.

The author of the report is Eli Clifton, research director of the Democratic foreign policy program at the Quincy Institute for responsive state craft, a us think tank. According to the article, the DPP authorities provide financial support to the Brookings Institution, the center for American progress, the new American security center, the center for strategic and International Studies (CSIS) and the Hudson Institute through the Taiwan economic and Cultural Representative Office in the United States (TECRO). The relevant information about the support is deeply embedded in the annual reports of think tanks.

According to the data collated in the article, CSIS received the most funds from TECRO among the five us think tanks, more than 500000 US dollars. The Brookings Institutions 2019 annual report reveals that TECROs funding for it ranges from $250000 to $499999. According to the 2019 annual honor list released by the center for progress of the United States, TECROs contribution to it ranges from $50000 to $90000. In addition, the new American security center received $100000 to $240000 from TECRO in the previous fiscal year, and the Hudson Institute received more than $100000 in 2018.

The above-mentioned financial aid totaling more than one million dollars has obviously affected the attitude of the think tanks and their researchers. Cliftons article mentioned that Ryan Hass, a Brookings Institution scholar, wrote for the Taipei Times in December 2019, stressing that both parties of the United States should support the maintenance of U.S. - Taiwan Relations. He published an article in the same media in February this year, urging policymakers in Washington and Taipei to seek to reach a U.S. - Taiwan Trade Agreement in China-U.S. technological competition to deal with Taiwans potential Economic risk at. Trevor Sutton, a senior researcher at the center for American progress, said in a column published in the Washington Monthly in March this year that strengthening the relationship between the United States and Taiwan will help democracy and freedom. When he published the report how to support democracy and human rights in Asia in September 2019, he provided direct advice to US policymakers on how to firmly support Taiwan. When the new U.S. security center provided Washington with a report on the challenges of Chinas rise in 2020, it urged U.S. policymakers to give priority to bilateral investment and trade agreements with Taiwan. CSIS published an article by Kurt Tong, former U.S. Consul General in Hong Kong and Macao, in May this year, saying that a trade agreement between the United States and Taiwan would strengthen U.S. leadership in Asia.

The Hudson Institute, which has long held a position on the Chinese hawks, is even more radical. Patrick Cronin and Ryan newhard, two researchers of the think tank, propose that the United States sell cluster bombs or burning weapons to Taiwan, so that Taiwan can threaten the mainlands non military targets of great political value. They also encourage the United States to take measures that are beneficial to the DPP Policy. Seth kropsey, another researcher at the Hudson Institute, even wrote last month urging US policymakers to recognize an autonomous or independent Taiwan..

Clifton stressed that these researchers did not disclose the interest relationship between their think tanks and Taiwan when they expressed the above-mentioned views. When the salary of experts may be partially from Taiwans economic and Cultural Representative Office in the United States, these funds may never be disclosed..

Financial aid to us think tanks and researchers has always been a common means for Taiwan authorities to try to influence us decision-makers. A reporter from the Global Times found that a us think tank called 2049 Research Institute is one of the objects of Taiwans regular financial aid. Institute researcher Yi Sian published an article in March this year, advocating that the United States should send troops to Taiwan.

Xiao Meiqin, a member of the Standing Committee of the Democratic Progressive Party, was a consultant of the 2049 Research Institute when it was founded, according to GaxIn, an online media in Taiwan. Since Tsai ing Wen came to power in 2016, TECRO and defense departments have sponsored the Institute with a total amount of US $350000 to US $500000, more than the US government. Earlier, the US media also disclosed that Taiwan authorities donated $550000 to the US conservative think tank Enterprise Institute through TECRO in 2009. Scholars of the think tank later published articles urging the U.S. government to sell advanced weapons to Taiwan and strengthen the relationship between the United States and Taiwan.

A mainland scholar who has long been concerned about the relationship between the United States and Taiwan said in an interview with the global times on the 19th that the DPP, as its director, would buy and attract think tanks from all countries, including the United States, and advocate Taiwan independence under the guise of academic exchanges. If the DPP authorities and some American politicians continue to move in the direction of Taiwan independence , it will only worsen cross strait relations and even eliminate the possibility of peaceful reunification.
