Commander Vincent P. Chen (USN, ret.) Joins GTI's Advisory Board
The Global Taiwan Institute (GTI) is very pleased to announce that Commander Vincent P. Chen (USN, ret.) will be joining as a member of its Advisory Board.
Prior to his retirement in June 2021, Chen served in the US Navy as a Submarine Warfare and Foreign Area Officer. Through consecutive navy and joint assignments, he acquired in-depth knowledge and insight on Indo-Pacific defense policy and national strategy, with a particular focus on China, Taiwan, and cross-Strait issues.
"We are honored that retired Commander Vincent Chen has agreed to join GTI’s Advisory Board. Vincent's service to this nation and decade of hands-on experience managing critical aspects of the US-Taiwan defense and security partnership will help guide our programs and deepen GTI’s coverage of these issues," stated GTI Executive Director Russell Hsiao.
For ten consecutive years, Vince managed aspects of US-China security relations and US-Taiwan defense cooperation at the highest echelon for both the US Navy and the Department of Defense (2011–2021).
"I would like to share and apply my uniquely acquired knowledge and insights as appropriate on regional defense related challenges. I look forward to working with GTI to promote better public understanding about Taiwan defense and security issues," stated Chen.
