Director General Huang provided an interesting and relevant talk about the important relationship between Taiwan and the United States, touching on the growing threat of China to peace in the Indo-Pacific region, particularly after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s recent visit to Taiwan.   Mr. Huang also talked about the stereotypes or misunderstandings about Taiwan.  Taiwan is a cosmopolitan country with diverse ethnic background.  The country is small, referencing that Colorado is 7.5 times larger than Taiwan with a population of 23.5 million people. (Colorado's population is 5.7 million).  It’s a crowded and competitive society.  In order to excel in Taiwan, you have to study hard.  On the other hand, the Taiwanese are a very happy people.  Our suicide rate is low. Taiwan is more sub-tropical geographically and the attitude of its people are more like South Pacific Islanders than other east Asian islanders.   Mr. Huang went on to address trade relations with the US, technological cooperation and supply chain challenges.  To hear the entire program presentation, click on the link below.
