A Taiwan trade delegation visited Boston’s Chinatown on August 28 and 29, including the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association of New England.
Roy Yuan-Rong Leu, vice minister of the Overseas Community Affairs Council of Taiwan, thanked the overseas Chinese community for its support. He also appreciated their efforts to promote Chinese culture in the United States.
“Learning Chinese is a major trend and teaching the next generation of Chinese Americans to speak Mandarin will help them be more competitive,” Leu said.
The OCAC donated $800 to the CCBA’s street cleaning fund. Sheng Xiong You of the Kuomintang also gave $250.
Leu also visited other family associations in Boston.
