President Tsai meets with former US Secretary of Labor Elaine L. Chao. President Tsai receives a gift from former US Secretary of Labor Elaine L. Chao and her father James S.C. Chao.
On the afternoon of October 13, President Tsai Ing-wen met with former US Secretary of Labor Elaine L. Chao and her father James S.C. Chao, to whom the president extended a cordial welcome.

President Tsai and her visitors had a very amiable conversation, discussing Ms. Chao's relationships with her family members. Noting that Ms. Chao's father James Chao, Chairman of the Foremost Group, and his wife have six daughters, the president said that having seven females all together under one roof must have been a very happy experience. Ms. Chao's father has always shown respect for women and was very proud when President Tsai was elected as Taiwan's first female president, for which the president expressed great respect and gratitude.

During a relaxed and friendly conversation, Chairman Chao recounted memories of his early life in Taiwan as the president listened and nodded in recognition.

Commenting on Taiwan's economic policies, President Tsai stated that the government has always encouraged overseas firms to invest in Taiwan and has vigorously sought to expand economic and trade cooperation and exchanges with other countries. In particular, Taiwan and Southeast Asian countries have highly complementary economies, and our government has recently been pushing hard for cooperation with those countries in the hope of creating mutually beneficial relations by sharing Taiwan's experience with the development of small and medium businesses.

President Tsai also invited her visitors to come to Taiwan again to recall pleasant memories, experience the warmth of our people, and renew their acquaintance with the current state of Taiwan's development.
