The American Institute in Taiwan congratulated National Sun Yat-sen University and Kaohsiung City on the re-opening of the America Center, which is the only one of its kind in all Taiwan. The Center symbolizes the historic friendship and cooperation between the people of the United States and Taiwan and the desire of the American people and the people of Taiwan to strengthen and deepen ties.
The America Center is an international academic institution established in 1999 with resources from National Sun Yat-sen University and support from the American Institute in Taiwan.
