TAIPEI (CNA) – The United States’ top representative in Taiwan on Tuesday praised
Taiwan’s experience and leadership in the area of women’s entrepreneurship as a Taiwan-U.S. joint workshop on women’s entrepreneurs in the technology sector opened in Taipei.
Speaking at the opening of the two-day workshop titled “Building a Bright Future for Women Entrepreneurs in Tech,” Kin Moy (梅健華), director of the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT), said the U.S. believes Taiwan “has a tremendous amount of experience and leadership to share in this area.” Taiwan is in many ways at the leading edge of women’s empowerment and technology entrepreneurship, Moy said.
“Taiwan recently elected its first female president, it is a leader in LGBT rights in Asia, and it has been at the forefront of technology innovation for decades,” he said.
The U.S. has always remained committed to promoting female entrepreneurship around the world, Moy said, citing the Global Entrepreneurship Summit to be held in India later this month. [FULL STORY]
