This paper analyzes the relations between United States, Taiwan, and China in view of recent developments. The paper addresses the impact of the midair collision between a U.S. spy plane and a Chinese jet fighter on U.S.-Chinese relations and discusses how it reinforced Chinese leadership and the Chinese people's distrust for the United States, while increasing the chances that the U.S may punish China by selling Taiwan an array of military equipment. The paper also considers the increasingly important U.S. economic and trade relations with China and the role Taiwan plays from the perspective of both the U.S. and China.

From the Paper:

"This incident reinforced Chinese leadership and the Chinese people's distrust for the United States. It strengthened their perception that the United States sees China as its
potential enemy and a potential adversary. The United States apparently does not want to see China as a strong country. However, the Chinese leadership understands that China is in a weak position. In the case of the plane, the Chinese side had it and therefore, it had an upper hand. It was expected that China was retaining the plane for research purposes. Chinese side may have been making very good use of the time to study the plane carefully and to learn from the technology embodied in the plane. After all, this was a rare opportunity for the Chinese military and the United States had to pay the price for the accident. China's decision to delay the plane's return was thus, development-focused."
