Home Letters for Taiwan Starbuck's Undermining of Taiwan's Sovereignty Response from Starbucks Coffee Company - Case # 7098249

Response from Starbucks Coffee Company - Case # 7098249

E-mail Print PDF

Hello Leo,
 
Thank you so much for taking the time to write to us.
 
As you mentioned in your email, Taiwan was previously labeled "Taiwan, Province of China" on the store locator system on Starbucks.com in deference to International naming conventions. Starbucks prefers not to take a position on political issues, however the system has been adjusted and the store locator is now labeled "Taiwan."  We apologize for any frustration this may have caused you.
 
If you have any further questions or concerns that I was unable to address, please feel free to let me know. 
 
Thanks again,
 
Madeline A.
Customer Relations
Starbucks Coffee Company

Monday through Friday, 5AM to 6PM (PST)
 
 
p.s. I'd really like to know how my response met your needs; click here if you'd be willing to share your thoughts in a brief survey.

Newsflash

A major new bill to strengthen and enhance the Taiwan Relations Act (TRA) has been introduced to the US Congress by Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, chairperson of the House of Representatives Foreign Relations Committee.

“With the TRA and the 2000 Taiwan Relations Enhancement Act, it is the most important piece of Taiwan legislation in the US Congress over the past 30 years,” said Coen Blaauw, an executive with the Formosa Association For -Public Affairs.

Known as the “Taiwan Policy Act of 2011,” the bill may have enough bipartisan support to pass the Republican-controlled House, but it is likely to have a harder time in the Senate.
