Taipei, June 27 (CNA) President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) said on Tuesday there is no end to the road of reform of the nation’s defense as she urged ranking military officers to persist with courage to help solve problems.
The president reiterated her push for reforms at a ceremony at the Armed Forces Officer’s Club at which 21 military officers were promoted to the ranks of lieutenant or major generals, or vice or rear admirals.
The promotions will take effect on July 1.
Tsai said the promotions meant the officers will have to shoulder more responsibility, and she asked them to “keep in mind the problems they have observed along the way from the rank and file, and persist with courage to solve problems.” [FULL STORY]
