Currently, both countries have presidents that are attempting engagement policies to help bring about better relations with the neighbors after periods of tense interactions. Taiwan’s President Ma Ying-jeou is trying to have his second administration with no surprises in foreign policy like his first. South Korea’s President Park Geun-hye has come into office looking for ways to implement her trustpolitik policy and engage with North Korea.

Moreover, they discussed if it possible to draw lessons South Korea and Taiwan can learn from each other’s experiences in dealing with their neighbor.
