Back to TAHW

Back to TAHW 2000
    Statement from Rep. Duncan

Statement by Congressman John Duncan, Jr. (R-TN)

May 12, 2000

I am writing to congratulate members of the East Tennessee Chapter of the Taiwanese Association of America, during Taiwanese American Heritage Week 2000.

Members of the Taiwanese community have played an invaluable role in every facet of American life. For example, Taiwanese Americans have distinguished themselves as successful and notable artists, Nobel Laureate scientists, researchers, human rights activists and business leaders.

This week is especially important because the United States and Taiwan celebrate a long-standing friendship. It is important that our two Nations continue to enjoy the relations we currently have.

I regret that I will be unable to attend your celebration in person this weekend. However, I want you to know that I appreciate all that the Taiwanese American community has done for East Tennessee, and, indeed, the rest of our Nation.

Again, congratulations and best wishes on your contributions to our Country. If I can ever be of assistance to you or your organization, please do not hesitate to let me know.

With kindest regards, I am


John J. Duncan, Jr.

Member of Congress
