President Tsai Ing-wen says that the world cannot ignore Taiwan’s existence, despite
pressure from Beijing. Tsai was speaking Tuesday while meeting with young volunteers set to go abroad this summer with Taiwan’s Youth Overseas Peace Corps.
Over 1,000 volunteers are participating in this year’s program. Teams are set to serve in 23 countries, providing assistance in areas such as medicine, education, information technology, and environmental protection.
Tsai said that all of the fields covered by the program are areas in which Taiwan can make the greatest international contribution. Taking medicine as an example, she said that Taiwan has sent medical teams to assist its diplomatic allies. [FULL STORY]
