Taiwan Tati Cultural and Educational Foundation

Tsai must fulfill her historic duty

For the past two years, following its victories in the 2016 elections, the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has been in control of both the executive and legislative branches of government. This puts the government in a much stronger position than those of former presidents Lee Teng-hui (李登輝) and Chen Shui-bian (陳水扁).

If the DPP government cannot even resolve the relatively minor matter of National Taiwan University’s (NTU) selection of a president, it will be held in disdain not only by China, but also by the pan-blue camp and even by many in the pan-green camp.


MOFA should speak for Taiwan

Of all the Cabinet agencies, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) is perhaps the one most overshadowed by the nation’s long-existing national identity struggle of Taiwan versus the Republic of China (ROC), regardless of which party is in power.

It is not difficult to understand why.

The details of a piece of US Senate legislation released on Wednesday revealed calls for US troops to participate in Taiwan’s military exercises and vice versa, a part of efforts by US lawmakers to support Taiwan amid what they see as a rising military threat from China.


Public must follow world affairs

During this year’s World Health Assembly (WHA) last month, a non-governmental team organized an exhibition called “Hospital Without Borders” to showcase Taiwan’s public health achievements at a venue near the WHO headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland.

I delivered speeches in New York City, promoted the exhibition and guided visitors inside the exhibition in Geneva, and watched from the public gallery the discussion over proposals to invite Taiwan to participate in the WHA.


KMT honors Beijing, but not Chiang Ching-kuo

The so-called “leadership” of the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) continues to swear allegiance to former president Chiang Ching-kuo (蔣經國), with some party members even welling up with tears at the mention of his name.

Meanwhile, they seem to have utterly abandoned the spirit of the party that he led. While they criticize President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文), they turn their back on Chiang.

A 53-year-old woman in Taipei jumped to her death on Saturday morning, leaving behind a note accusing President Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) of incompetence and of showing no concern for the sufferings of people.

Kuan Shu-ying (管淑櫻) climbed to the rooftop of the apartment building where she lived on Xinsheng N Road in Taipei at about 4:45am on Saturday. Police and firefighters soon arrived on the scene after receiving telephone calls from onlookers concerned to find Kuan sitting on the roof’s parapet.
