When Rotary meets, you never know what's going to happen or who you might meet. Last Wednesday was an auspicious day with more than a full house, 44 members and guests there to hear from our speakers.
Mr. Andy Kang-I Chen, Director General of Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Vancouver and Ruth Chang, Director Taiwan Trade Center.
There is a strong trade relationship between Taiwan and Canada and British Columbia. Commerce covers many areas, I.T., Agriculture, Transportation....and the list goes on. Travel between the two countries is very robust, with 3 daily flights and a constant flow of visitors each way.
In addition, there were congratulations all around for both Alice Wong and Kenny Chiu, both elected as Members of Parliament on Oct 21st. Our Rotary Club now has perhaps a unique situation with two MP's as members.
If you missed last Wednesday's meeting, sorry, you missed out on some celebratory cake, an informative programme and a chance to network with the Taiwanese circle of Chamber people.
