BMI View: Taiwan's defence capabilities continue to fall behind those of Beijing, despite a steadily increasing budget. This has pushed the Ma administration towards a domestically controversial approach of diplomacy and engagement towards China. Moves to disband conscription and establish an all-volunteer force have been delayed and will ultimately be difficult to implement.

On the one hand, Taiwan's decision to scale back its armed forces in combination with a significant decline in defence imports may point to closer integration with China. Indeed, in Q114 China and Taiwan held the first government-to-government talks in 65 years, a highly symbolic development that builds on the earlier successes of Ma's government, despite the generally negative reaction domestically. On the other hand,
these cutbacks may signify an increased reliance on a US counterbalance to China's rise. Taiwan's various defence and security ties with the US reinforce the predominance of this relationship for Taipei.
