On June 17th, OCAC Minister Chia-Ching Hsu visited the Overseas Community Care Network of Los Angeles. She was received by President Olivia Liao, an OCAC Senior Adviser, along with 14 directors, to discuss and exchange ideas regarding the Network. In the afternoon, Minister Hsu held a meeting with members of the Taiwanese Junior Chambers of Commerce of North America, accompanied by Director Ming-Yung Chen, Deputy Director Hsin-Ju Cheng, and Tai-Hsin Liu from the Culture Center of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Los Angeles.
In her speech, Minister Hsu expressed special thanks to the executives and directors of the Overseas Community Care Network of Los Angeles for making time in their busy schedules for the meeting. Los Angeles is often the first stop for many Taiwanese people who come to the United States for business, study, or travel, resulting in a relatively higher number of cases requiring emergency assistance. Fortunately, with the active support and cooperation of the compatriots in the Los Angeles area, the Overseas Community Care Network of Los Angeles has managed to accumulate a substantial amount of resources, enabling them to promptly provide necessary services and aid. Minister Hsu encouraged members of the Network to continue upholding the spirit of service and ensuring that overseas travelers in urgent need can receive timely assistance and care. During the meeting, President Olivia Liao presented specific cases of emergency assistance, while Minister Hsu shared examples from other overseas communities. Minister Hsu also addressed the challenges of discerning between accurate and false information, stating that the OCAC would organize relevant online lectures and invite experts and scholars to deliver presentations on this specific topic.
In the afternoon, Minister Hsu continued with a meeting with members of the Taiwanese Junior Chambers of Commerce of North America, with around 40 directors from various regions in North America attending. The event began with an introduction of all participants by President Hsin-Yi Kao, who had just recently completed her term. Minister Hsu praised the active involvement of the Junior Chambers in overseas compatriot affairs, commending their efforts in invigorating the overseas Taiwanese communities. She emphasized the OCAC's commitment to nurturing and supporting the development of the junior chambers, while also conveying her vision and expectations for the second and third generations of Taiwanese-Americans. The Q&A session that followed was very lively and productive, with Minister Hsu addressing all the questions raised by the members.
