AmCham Mourns Death of Former President Lee

The American Chamber of Commerce in Taipei joins the people of Taiwan in mourning the passing of former President Lee Teng-hui. Lee played a historic role in promoting Taiwan’s democratic development. Holder of a Master’s degree from Iowa State University and a doctorate from Cornell, he was also a strong advocate of close relations between Taiwan and the U.S.

Lee’s contacts with AmCham Taipei began when he served as Mayor of Taipei City and later Governor of Taiwan Province. The Chamber will be forever grateful to him for starting the tradition – which still continues – for the President to attend AmCham’s annual Hsieh Nien Fan banquet as the keynote speaker.
