This has been an action-packed week. 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. This week on Taiwan Insider, Andrew Ryan and Natalie Tso dive into 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. 

Come for the missiles, stay for the pandas? Today’s #Taiwan will guide you through the online 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.
