President Tsai Ing-wen gave her encouragement to newly commissioned generals at a ceremony on
Tuesday. The generals of various ranks will be formally commissioned on Saturday.
Tsai said her administration has spent its first year working to reform the military and build up public respect for the armed forces.
“We want to raise the quality of life in the military. Whether it’s the uniform, equipment, or the barracks, we have already made tangible improvements,” Tsai said. “We want to make the military strong, so from self-sufficiency in military hardware to raising the quality of our personnel, we are moving stably forward.”
Tsai called on the new crop of generals to work towards making a military career a more attractive choice for young people of ability. [FULL STORY]
