|Subject:||Resolution Commemorating the 40th Anniversary of the Enactment of the Taiwan Relations Act|
|I am planning to introduce a resolution commemorating the 40th anniversary of the enactment of the Taiwan Relations Act.
For more than 60 years, Taiwan has worked to establish itself as a strong and successful model of democracy and remains a bright beacon of democracy in Asia and across the world.
The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania established a trade and investment office in Taiwan in 2005, and since that time we have exported hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of local products that include chemicals, electronics and machinery, making Taiwan one of the largest foreign markets for our state.
Pennsylvania has maintained a friendly sister-state relationship with Taiwan for many, many years; and that relationship is clearly getting stronger.
Please join me in recognizing this important partnership.
