On November 21, National Dr. Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall's director-general Wang Lan-sheng (王蘭生) led a group of staff members to visit the Yokohama Overseas Chinese School (YOCS), and received a warm welcome from YOCS chairman Luo Hung-chien (羅鴻健), deputy chairman Kuan Kuang-chia (関廣佳), school president Tu Wen-chien (杜文劍). This is the first time that the S.Y.S. Memorial Hall visits YOCS with the intention of promoting mutual collaboration between the two sides while increasing exchanges between Japan and Taiwan.
During the visit, YOCS educational affairs director Chien Wan-yu (錢婉瑜) briefly introduced school affairs. Both sides exchanged views and visited the newly-built teaching building. Last March, the inauguration ceremony of the new building of YOCS was held, and the S.Y.S. Memorial Hall specially presented a copy of a valuable calligraphy of Dr. Sun Yat-sen "The World is for All People," to establish friendly ties between Taiwan and Japan. However, due to the pandemic, the donation ceremony has not yet been held.
Director-general Wang pointed out that this year marks the 50th anniversary of the founding of the S.Y.S. Memorial Hall and the 125th anniversary of the founding of YOCS. He hopes that in the future, both sides can have more opportunities for exchange and collaboration, such as exhibiting valuable collections of the S.Y.S. Memorial Hall and holding academic activities in YOCS.
Established in 1897 by Sun Yat-sen, YOCS is the first overseas Chinese school in Japan. In addition to its historical significance, the school has close ties with Taiwan's education system, Overseas Community Affairs Council, and Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office in Japan.
