My thanks to the board directors and members of PPSEAWA Taiwan. Owing to your full support, various tasks of the association are smoothly progressing.
Among 19 member nations of PPSEAWA international, nine of them have established representative offices in Taiwan. Just recently, we have invited ambassador CATHERINE JANE RAPER, Australian representative in Taipei for a lunch gathering. During the meeting, many vital women issues were discussed. Both sides expressed interest in expanding exchange of issues of mutual concerns. In the future, PPSEAWA Taiwan will follow the pattern to extend our contact with foreign representatives in Taiwan.
In June, the association hosted a successful visit to the renowned low carbon community-Jiantang in Taipei city. We have also forwarded a detail report of the visit to PPSEAWA International and all member nations, which gave us various warm response and feedback. Countries around the world now support fully the concept of low carbon environmental protection, and the main theme of next year PPSEAWA international conference in Malaysia is also focusing on energy conservation and carbon reduction. Through the interaction this time, we felt the warm friendship of other member nations, and we are planning the possibility of visiting PPSEAWA Japan and Thailand.
The main theme of UN Women next year will focus on negotiations for women. In consequence, we discovered that negotiation skill is not an issue that attracts deserved attention in Taiwan, even though it is fairly important in the business and economic fields. We are planning to focus on the subject, and host related activities at the end of this year. We look forward to the participation of all members of the association.
