Reuters reveals As China menaces Taiwan, the island’s friends aid its secretive submarine project

A Reuters investigation revealed how an array of foreign submarine-technology vendors, with the approval of their governments, are aiding a secretive program to build subs in Taiwan. Taipei has stealthily sourced technology, components and talent from at least seven nations including the U.S., Britain, Australia, South Korea, India, Spain and Canada to help it build an underwater fleet with the potential to exact a heavy toll on any Chinese attack. The report provides the most detailed account yet of the program and the extent of foreign assistance Taiwan is receiving.
