Letters For Taiwan

Response from Starbucks Coffee Company

E-mail Print PDF

Dear Leo,

Thank you for your comment! Taiwan was previously labeled “Taiwan, Province of China” on the store locator system on Starbucks.com in deference to International naming conventions. Because Starbucks takes no position on political issues, the system has been adjusted and the store locator is now labeled “Taiwan.”

Dear Sir or Madam:
I have always been a great admirer of Starbucks.  Its spectacular success in business.  Entrepreneurial aptitude.  Classy yet homey approach.  And above all, its uncompromising attitude in pursuing a high ethical standard such as serving environmentally friendly coffee.

Legislators from across party lines yesterday blasted the Taipei Military Police for confiscating White Terror era-related documents seized in a search of a civilian’s residence.

The Legislative Yuan’s Foreign and National Defense Committee put aside its scheduled agenda to question officials over the affair, passed resolutions condemning the military police’s actions and demanded the preservation of all documents relating to the White Terror era.
