Director Christensen made a courtesy call to Minister Wang
Content:
As AIT Director W. Brent Christensen’s term of office drew to a close and he prepared to leave Taiwan, he paid a visit and said goodbye to Minister Mei-Hua Wang on July 12, 2021 at the Ministry of Economic Affairs. During Director Christensen’s tenure, the friendship between Taiwan and U.S. had expanded and flourished. Before leaving, Minister Wang gave Director Christensen a parting gift on behalf of the Ministry of Economic Affairs. It was a laser engraving on Taiwanese cypress of the words "Real Friends, Real Progress." That gift fully expressed the spirit of Taiwan and its unchanging friendship with the U.S. It also seemed to echo Director Chistensen’s farewell statement: "I may be leaving Taiwan, but Taiwan will never leave me."
