Taipei, June 11 (CNA) The United States government’s US$255 million investment in its new American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) compound is a symbol of its commitment to Taiwan, a visiting American congressman said Monday.

“The opening tomorrow of the new AIT headquarters shows how important our relationship is to the U.S.,” Gregg Harper (R-MS) told reporters in Taipei.

The new compound, built at an estimated cost of US$255 million, further shows that the U.S.’ commitment is strong and will continue, he added.

Harper is visiting Taiwan mainly for Tuesday’s dedication ceremony for the AIT’s new office complex in Taipei’s Neihu District, which is also expected to be attended by Marie Royce, assistant secretary of educational and cultural affairs in the U.S. Department of State, and AIT Chairman James Moriarty, according to Taiwan’s foreign ministry.    [FULL  STORY]
