In this episode of the Defence Connect podcast, Malcolm Davis, senior analyst at the Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI), joins host Stephen Kuper to unpack the economic and geopolitical implications of a Chinese invasion of Taiwan.

  • The pair begin the podcast assessing how a failure of the US to defend Taiwan could create a broader fallout in the Indo-Pacific.
  • Davis and Kuper then unpack the economic and industrial ramifications of an invasion, especially in areas of high technology which rely on semiconductors and microchips.
  • The podcast wraps up discussing what lessons could be taken from the invasion of Ukraine, and how Australia could plan for a potential conflict in Taiwan.
