Taiwan President Tsai placed 37th on Forbes World's 100 Most Powerful Women

Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen placed 37th among Forbes' annual World's 100 Most Powerful Women list for 2020 as her leadership was noted through the pandemic as being viewed as a "global model." 


Forbes described the president as a "rebuke to Beijing's efforts to control the island." Tsai rose four spots from the 2019 list, ranking 37th place.


 Tsai has "broken protocol" by making overtures to the United States, which have created tension with China, according to the magazine, in terms of foreign policy.


Meanwhile, German Chancellor Angela Merkel ranked first on the list, followed by European Central Bank President Christine Lagarde, U.S. Vice President-elect Kamala Harris and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen.


The list World's 100 Most Powerful Women list for 2020 was released by Forbes last December 8 and now on its 17th edition.
