CLOSER LOOK at TAIWAN, an insightful introduction to Taiwan by featured
speaker Director General Andrew Kao. Mr. Kao, a native of Taipei,
Taiwan, is Director General of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office
in Atlanta; the office serves as the Republic of China on Taiwan's de
facto consulate general in Southeastern United States. Taiwan has long
been held as a model of economic evelopment and eaceful democratization
in East Asia. Since 1971, however, Taiwan has been unjustly ostracized
from most inter-governmental organizations. Mr. Kao will address how a
small island with scant resources has managed toachieve economic
prosperity and full-fledged democracy, Taiwan's relations with Mainland
China and the United States, as well as Taiwan's role in the
international arena.
