With opening remarks by Dr. Lyushun Shen, Representative, Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office in the United States

On June 1, 2015 the U.S. and Taiwan launched the U.S.-Taiwan Global Cooperation and Training Framework Agreement. The Framework will not only support broader U.S.-Taiwan cooperation, but will also provide a strong platform for enhancing joint engagement in the Asia Pacific region and the world. The Framework is a milestone that will bring into full focus Taiwan’s dramatic transformation from an international aid recipient to an aid provider, and provide a venue to contribute to the development of other countries in the Asia-Pacific and around the world.


Keynote Remarks:

Bruce Linghu, Deputy Foreign Minister, Taiwan

Kurt Tong, Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary, Bureau of Economic and Business Affairs, U.S. Department of State


Panel Discussion:
