“What does the U.S.-Taiwan relationship mean to you?” 2019 is a big year for AIT!  In 2019, AIT will be celebrating our 40th anniversary and honoring the 40 years of U.S.-Taiwan friendship since the signing of the Taiwan Relations Act.  We will be kicking off a yearlong campaign called AIT@40, in which we celebrate the many dimensions of U.S.-Taiwan cooperation.

We want to know how YOU feel about the valuable and steadfast relationship between the United States and Taiwan.  What benefits has our peoples’ friendship brought you personally?  AIT values the role you play in the U.S.-Taiwan relationship, and we want to hear your voice!

We are now soliciting short, selfie-style videos that run 15-90 seconds.  Each video should feature one person’s answer to the question: “In One sentence, what does the U.S.-Taiwan relationship mean to you?”  Your video can be in Chinese or in English, and you can submit your video using Facebook messenger, YouTube, Google Drive, Dropbox, or Microsoft OneDrive.
