W. Brent Christensen Departs Taiwan
On July 16, 2021, W. Brent Christensen departed Taipei after completing a three-year posting as Director of AIT. During his time in Taiwan, Christensen achieved progress in all areas of his “Four Promotes” – promote U.S.-Taiwan security cooperation; promote U.S.-Taiwan economic and commercial ties; promote Taiwan’s participation on the international stage; and promote U.S.-Taiwan people-to-people ties. His hard work and dedication in supporting the robust and rock-solid U.S. relationship with Taiwan exemplifies the meaning of “real friends, real progress.” All of AIT bids him a very fond farewell and we all wish him well.
