    Taiwanese American Heritage Week  2001

May 10, 2001

I am pleased to join so many of my friends in celebrating Taiwanese American Heritage Week. It gives us the opportunity to recognize the tremendous contributions to this nation made by Taiwanese Americans and to reflect on the great democratic strides made by our longtime friends on Taiwan.

Last year was a milestone year for Taiwan. A new President was elected - a President who seeks freedom from oppression for his people and independence through self-determination for his nation. I join with my friends here in the United States in wishing our friends on Taiwan great success in their unyielding efforts to exercise their democratic rights.

It is truly fitting that we take some time to celebrate Taiwanese American Heritage Week, recognizing the wonderful story of our Taiwanese American community. I wish all of my friends the very best on this great occasion.

Best wishes,


Member of Congress
