The Pan Pacific & Southeast Asia Women’s Association was established in 1928, with the Republic of China as one of the 4 founding members. Ever since assuming office as the 14th President of the PPSEAWA Taiwan, ROC, Madame Regina Chen, with the support of her abundant experience of entrepreneurship in managing her own enterprises over the years, devoted unreservedly in the promotion of PPSEAWA Taiwan’s overall operations and its interaction and exchange with the international society. Accordingly, the Association’s goal of enhancing “people to people diplomacy” through international interflow has been fruitfully achieved. Series of notable events was hosted with resounding success. This further enables the world to gain a better and deeper understanding of PPSEAWA Taiwan. In particular, the 27th PPSEAWA International Conference 2019 held in Taiwan for the first time in the past 75 years reached brilliant accomplishment, winning praise and recognition from the PPSEAWA International as well as all member states.
In December 2019, with the support and endorsement of all members, I was deeply honored to accept the responsibility as the 16th President of PPSEAWA Taiwan. ROC. In the next 3 years, I will do my utmost best to continue promoting exchanges with our sister state members and participation in all international events and activities. I will likewise encourage and sponsor members of PPSEAWA Taiwan to actively participate in various international conferences, as a means to level up our volume and support for INGO events. By doing so, we hope that Taiwan can make more contribution to global women’s issues and to show the world Taiwan’s achievement in women’s empowerment. It is our hope that PPSEAWA Taiwan will become a platform for sustained development in promoting and fulfilling Taiwan’s international participation as well as gender equality. In my capacity as President, I will also encourage more vigorous and younger people to join us, hence bring in new blood to pass down the legacy and mission of PPSEAWA Taiwan.
In the past 6 years, thanks to President Regina Chen’s contribution to rebuilding a strong foundation and providing abundant resources and support for us. The future of PPSEAWA Taiwan is now in our hands. I sincerely hope that all sisters can work closely together with me to carry on promoting the idea of “people to people diplomacy” through international exchange, and further advance Taiwan’s friendship and cooperation with the world!
President, PPSEAWA Taiwan, ROC
