Taipei, June 12 (CNA) The new American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) office in Neihu is a
symbol of the strength of bilateral ties between the United States and Taiwan, a visiting U.S. assistant secretary of state said Tuesday at a dedication ceremony for the new facility.
Marie Royce, assistant secretary of state for educational and cultural affairs, declared that the 14,934-square-meter five-story complex represents much more than steel, glass and concrete.
“The new office complex is a symbol of the strength and vibrancy of the U.S.-Taiwan partnership in the 21st century,” she said.
Royce said she was on her first overseas mission since assuming her post in March to celebrate this “extraordinary friendship.” [FULL STORY]
