Entry Title Date
Recognizing The Republic Of China’S National Day October 5, 2015
Virginia Foxx, R-NC
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize the National Day of the Republic of China, also known as Taiwan. October 10 marks 104 years since the beginning of the Wuchang uprising and the eventual establishment of the Republic of China on January 1st, 1912. The United States is fortunate to have Taiwan as a trusted ally, and our countries’ mutual interests and shared democratic values continue to strengthen our relationship. The success of Taiwan’s democratic society is a testament to the benefits of free enterprise in a strong civil society. It is important that Taiwan have opportunities to contribute to the global community by gaining observer status in organizations, such as the United Nations and the International Criminal Police Organization. Allowing Taiwan access to these groups’ resources will improve international cooperation and help combat international criminal enterprises. My best wishes to the Taiwanese people as they mark National Day and celebrate their vibrant democracy."
