“The resumption of TIFA talks is an excellent example of cooperation between AIT and AmCham Taiwan. Both in the run up to the talks and since, AmCham member companies contributed vital input on Taiwan business conditions. That partnership helped make the TIFA talks a success.”
“It is a pleasure to be here this evening to celebrate the joint efforts of the United States and Taiwan to promote investment in America. I would be remiss if I did not take this opportunity to recognize the support of Minister John Deng and Director General Jen-Ni Yang. Their partnership has been critical to the successful recruitment of the largest delegation at the Investment Summit. Moreover, it is a delegation composed of sophisticated and accomplished companies. Thank you to you both.”
