The U.S. State Department’s Bureau of East Asian and Pacific Affairs (EAP) recently
conveyed via its official Twitter account gratitude for the Republic of China (Taiwan) government’s US$500,000 donation to relief efforts for those affected by Hurricane Harvey.
Stanley Kao, head of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office in the U.S., presented the donation Sept. 12 to Gail J. McGovern, president and CEO of the American Red Cross. The same day, the EAP tweeted a photo of Kao handing over the check, writing “U.S. appreciates Taiwan’s assistance.”
The ceremony at the American Red Cross headquarters in Washington was also attended by James Heller, director of the U.S. State Department’s Office of Taiwan Coordination, and John J. Norris Jr., managing director of the Washington Office of the American Institute in Taiwan. [FULL STORY]
