Taiwanese American Heritage Week Statement

Senator Zell Miller

May 12, 2002

Dear Friends:

It is a pleasure to share with you my warmest regards and best wishes as you celebrate the 2002 Taiwanese American Heritage Week.

This weeklong celebration is part of the Asian/Pacific Islander American Heritage Month, and I join people throughout Georgia and across the nation in paying tribute to the Asian heritage and community.

Taiwanese American Heritage Week celebrates the unique and diverse contributions of the more than 500,000 Taiwanese Americans living in the United States. As a U.S. Senator, I am proud to represent more than 35,000 Georgians who are Taiwanese Americans, many of whom have made significant contributions to our state and nation as notable artists, Nobel Laureate scientists, researchers, human rights activists, and business leaders.

Taiwanese American Heritage Week honors the long-standing friendship between the United States and Taiwan. I commend those of you who have worked so hard to make this Atlanta event a success, [.]. Please know how much I appreciate all of the great accomplishments and contributions of the Taiwanese American community.



Zell Miller
