Democratic nations in the world value their people-to-people diplomacy more than their
political diplomacy with other nations, which is also the dominating trend of the
democratic era today. Taiwan Tati Cultural And Educational Foundation has been strive for
Taiwan's prosperous future by sending letters to political leaders around the world. As
these letters are being edited and published to the public today, we hope to rouse up
patriotic sentiments in you and to have you participate in the promotion of people-to
people diplomatic relation for the sake of Taiwan's welfare. Although they are not written
by persons who are very well-versed in English and grammatical errors in them are
unavoidable, but the author quotes from major medium reports and real life events; his
words certainly have a point.
When newspaper commentaries are being quoted from time to time, it is not aimed to do
anything but to open up another path that leads to a brighter future for Taiwanese people.
Here the Foundation pledges everyone to make use of every informative medium available to
make our voices heard by media and leaders of other countries, hence improve Taiwan's
status in the world stage.
