TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Taiwan’s envoy in the United States, Hsiao Bi-khim (蕭美琴), was able to tell 20 Californian mayors about the island country’s fight against the COVID-19 pandemic thanks to the assistance of a Taiwanese-American mayor, reports said Saturday (Dec. 19).

Hsiao held a video conference with members of the California Mayors Coalition on Friday (Dec. 18) to explain how Taiwan had become one of the most successful countries in containing the spread of the virus, CNA reported.

The envoy’s 30-minute talk was organized by Peggy Huang (黃瑞雅), the mayor of Yorba Linda in the state’s Orange County. As the city government’s web page says, she is a Taiwanese native who spent most of her adolescence and young adult years in Northern California.    [FULL  STORY]
