President Tsai Ing-wen expressed her gratitude to 2023 APEC Economic Leaders’ Meeting special envoy Morris Chang, founder of Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. Nov. 20 in Taipei City.
Tsai thanked Chang for successfully conveying four messages to APEC: first, that Taiwan is promoting peace and prosperity in the Asia-Pacific; second, that Taiwan is collaborating on energy transition to mitigate the impacts of climate change; third, that Taiwan is building more resilient supply chains; and fourth, that Taiwan is taking action to bridge the digital divide.
The president noted that Chang’s role as envoy to the Asia-Pacific region’s most important economic and trade forum allowed Taiwan to enhance exchange with other regional nations and continue to play a key international role.
Thus, during the Nov. 15-17 forum in San Francisco, Chang exchanged views with leaders and officials in various multilateral and bilateral meetings to facilitate future cooperation and exchange.
Chang held two-way talks with U.S. Vice President Kamala D. Harris, Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken, Director of the National Economic Council Lael Brainard; Japan Prime Minster Fumio Kishida and Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.
Responding to the president, Chang said he appreciated the opportunity to represent the country at APEC. He added that he shared many technology-related issues with leaders and officials and was received graciously by them. (POC-E)
