Pam Roach Delegation Leader To Taiwan
Last month I led a delegation of national leaders to the Republic of China. I am the Washington State chair of the National Foundation of Women Legislators and am on their International Committee.
The group consisted of leader within key national non governmental groups, groups aimed at advising elected officials: National Council of State Legislators; Council of State Governments; American Legislative Exchange Council; Northeast Governor's Conference; National Mayor's Assn.; Midwest Governor's Conference; National Assn. of Counties.
There we no taxpayer dollars spent on the trip which was sponsored by the Taipei Economic and Cultural Association. The Republic of China (ROC) or Taiwan is a loyal ally of the United States. It is a shining example of democracy in Southeast Asia. Actually, it is the only example.
