AIT Thanksgiving Tradition
The tradition of the Director of AIT inviting the President and his advisors to a dinner on the evening before Thanksgiving is a very old one. Former President Lee Teng-hui attended the Thanksgiving Eve dinner several times. The late Presidents Chiang Chin-kuo and Chiang Kai-shek also attended social functions at the homes of AIT Directors or American ambassadors.
The tradition of the Thanksgiving dinner attended together by the AIT staff and the leadership of Taiwan is a symbol of the strong friendship between our two peoples.
