Welcome to Join 2018 Taiwan Business Alliance Conference
The Taiwan Business Alliance Conference is Taiwan's most prestigious annual investment promotion activity. Every year, senior managers of leading multinational corporations are invited to present their views on current industry trends and the government's major industrial policies. In addition, leading companies often use the Conference as an opportunity to sign Letters of Intent (LOI). This annual Conference is attended by hundreds of senior executives representing leading multinational corporations. It provides an opportunity for corporate decision-makers, industry experts and venture capital firms to gain an in-depth understanding of Taiwan's investment environment, as well as its competitive strengths and new business opportunities. The Conference also showcases Taiwan's investment promotion achievements. The theme of this year's Conference is "Contact Taiwan, Invest Taiwan, Bravo Taiwan." Building on the foundation of the government's "5+2 Industrial Innovation Plan" and "Forward-Looking Infrastructure Development Program", this year's Conference will highlight sectors such as smart manufacturing, artificial intelligence (AI), cloud computing, medicine and medical equipment, information security, circular economy, railway vehicles, AR/VR, gaming and other emerging sectors. Through its investment promotion efforts, Taiwan welcomes overseas companies to invest in Taiwan and creates more technology partnerships with Taiwanese firms. These efforts will help spur further industrial innovation and growth within Taiwan's economy.   For this year's Conference, the MOEA has invited distinguished leaders from many multinational corporations to share their views on industry trends and the outlook for investment in Taiwan. In addition, leading government officials will discuss new government policies that are focused on creating a Taiwanese investment environment that provides fertile soil for the growth of new innovation-oriented industries. Representatives from several leading corporations will share their experiences of investing in Taiwan, focusing on areas such as key technologies, strategic alliances and the industrial ecosystem. This year's Conference will provide an excellent opportunity to learn about Taiwan's evolving investment environment as well as gain insight into strategies being used by leading international corporations to grow within today's rapidly changing global economic and trading environment.

Rep. Tackey Chan named NAGE 2018 Legislator of the Year
Massachusetts State Representative Tackey Chan (D-Quincy) last week was awarded the National Association of Government Employees’ 2018 “Legislator of the Year” award, presented at the NAGE National Convention in Atlantic City, NJ. Since being elected to the Massachusetts House of Representatives in 2010, Representative Chan has worked closely with NAGE to protect public sector employees and ensure strong labor laws in the Commonwealth. “It has been an incredible honor to receive this recognition, and I am very proud to stand with and work with NAGE on critical issues that affect working men and women every day. Public employees are what make our government function and I hold great respect for their dedication and commitment to serving the public,” said Representative Tackey Chan. “In my over 40 years of dealing with the State Legislature, Representative Chan’s commitment to fairness and dignity in the workplace is unmatched.  NAGE is proud to work side-by-side with Representative Chan to build a better future for working people.  We could choose no better recipient for the 2018 Legislator of the Year Award than Representative Tackey Chan,” said NAGE National President David J. Holway. Representative Chan has been in public service since graduating from Brandeis University in 1995, starting as an intern in former Representative Michael Bellotti’s office before becoming a staff member to former Senator Michael Morrissey for nearly 12 years. He rose from Legislative Aide to General Counsel in Senator Morrissey’s office, then spent three years working as an Assistant Attorney General under Attorney General Martha Coakley. In 2010, he was elected to represent the 2nd Norfolk District in the Massachusetts House of Representatives and is currently serving his fourth term in office. In the 2017-2018 session, he was appointed Chair of the Joint Committee on Consumer Protection and Professional Licensure which oversees a number of regulatory divisions that impact labor.

Chinatown Adventure summer camp enriches urban youth
Each morning for seven weeks in the summer, children from the Boston Chinatown community walked to the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association for another day of camp. The Chinatown Adventure (CHAD) camp is a summer urban program for campers age 6 to 13. Campers created new memories as they visited the glorious museums of Boston, touched stingrays at aquariums and gazed at flowers and trees. The camp offered by the Phillips Brooks House Association seeks to enrich the lives of children in Boston’s Chinatown through a safe learning environment. Kids can strengthen academic skills, learn life skills, foster personal growth, promote cross-cultural awareness, as well as improve self-identity and self-esteem. Kelly Chen, a CHAD junior counselor, said her summer “turned out to be one of the best life learning lessons that I had experienced so far… I learned to be more assertive and learned how to take initiative.” CHAD is an affordable alternative to other summer programs, offering academics and field trips for urban youth. Financial aid is available. Campers of all ages went on at least one overnight camping trip. This year, grades four and five went on an overnight trip to New Hampshire, where they enjoyed an aerial course, wakeboarding and other exciting activities. Older campers could ice skate, go boating and rock climbing. The trips expose campers to new experiences outside of their community, stimulating personal growth and making learning fun.

Boston Knights director Robert Guen continues nine-man volleyball tradition
When Robert “Bobby” Guen grew up on Tyler Street, he did not have the luxury of TV and air conditioning. By day, Guen manages a successful dental practice. By night, he runs the Boston Knights nine-man volleyball team. Guen was born in Boston’s Chinatown to immigrants from Taishan, China. He attended Boston Latin School, along with Brandeis University and Tufts Dental School. His passion for volleyball traces back to 1969, when he followed his elder brother and pledged for the Boston Knights. The Boston Knights served as a brotherhood. There were few places, other than the YMCA in Chinatown, which offered a community for children. Fathers worked six to seven days a week, resulting in a lack of male supervision. Boys would play street volleyball for the Knights, Hurricanes or the Freemasons. Older members acted as mentors, instilling values and guiding younger members through school, college and beyond. Guen expects every Knights player who wears the jersey to uphold the club’s values: Friendship, brotherhood and camaraderie. The small group of boys has expanded about 100 members each year, comprising four men’s teams and two women’s teams.
