Taiwan Increases Military Spending

Wochit Headline News - Monday, 20 March 2017
The government of Taiwan is looking to expand its arsenal of aircraft with a purchase of American fighter jets. After Taiwan completes a transfer of two decommissioned US frigates, the government of President Tsai Ing-wen will request more modern aircraft to replace their aging fleet of F-16s. The decision to purchase new aircraft follows a recent review of Taiwan's defensive capabilities. The Taiwanese Defense Ministry prepares a review every four years.
