你知道全世界那一個國家擁有最高的捐血率嗎?答案是台灣🎊🎊
Do you know which country has the highest rate of blood donation in the world?” The answer turns out to be Taiwan.‼

💪台灣捐血率世界第一! #光華英文課 #一句話介紹台灣的好

Taiwan has the highest rate of blood donation in the world!

「你知道全世界那一個國家擁有最高的捐血率嗎?」答案是台灣,2300萬人中有200萬人捐過血。來台超過十年的法籍血漿製劑專家──白台瑞(Thierry Pierre Robert Burnouf)表示:「台灣民眾擁有捐血助人的社會意識,加上捐血單位與社團積極的宣傳,台灣有非常好的血液收集系統與政策。」20年前基於「國血國用」的政策,一步一步發展,讓台灣血液供應與品管都維持在國際水準之上。

1995年,台灣開始探求自行生產血漿製劑的可能性時,白台瑞受邀來台分享專業,後來持續協助發展血漿分離術的計劃,是台灣「國血國造」政策的先鋒。現在,他是 臺北醫學大學(官方版) 醫學工程學院副院長,經由他居中牽線,北醫大神經醫學研究中心與法國里爾大學合作,成立「神經科學共同實驗室」,由雙方一起從事神經科學研究。

Do you know which country has the highest rate of blood donation in the world?” The answer turns out to be Taiwan: some 2 million people out of our population of 23 million have donated blood. “The Taiwanese public has a social awareness about donating blood to help others. Plus, our blood banks and foundations are involved in educating the public about donations.”

Professor Thierry Burnouf, a French-born therapeutic blood product expert and vice dean of the College of Biomedical Engineering at Taipei Medical University says that Taiwan has outstanding blood collection systems and policies. Built on a foundation established by the blood self-sufficiency policy of 20 years ago and developed step by step since, Taiwan’s blood plasma supplies and quality controls are world class.

#Taiwan has officially applied to become a part of the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership.
台灣正式遞交申請加入 #跨太平洋夥伴全面進步協定 (CPTPP).

President Tsai Ing-wen tweeted on the move, stating “Taiwan's bid to join the #CPTPP reflects our commitment to promoting free trade in the Asia-Pacific. I am confident that our membership in this deal would strengthen joint economic development & benefit people across the region & the world.”
蔡英文總統表示這反映了我們致力於促進亞太自由貿易的承諾,也相信台灣加入後能夠為區域跟全球帶來經濟發展。

Taiwan will put the necessary preparations in place so that we can make concrete contributions to the regional economy.
台灣會做好充足的準備,按照自己的節奏與步調,為區域經濟做出具體貢獻。

昨天,台灣在自由貿易上邁出重要的一步。

昨日台湾はCPTPPへの加盟を正式に申請しました。蔡英文総統が言うように、台湾は長年にわたってCPTPPのような質の高い自由貿易協定に参加する準備を進めてきました。

台湾は世界貿易機関(WTO)のメンバーの一員として活躍し、ICTや半導体などの産業は世界経済に欠かせない存在となっています。台湾がCPTPPに加盟すれば、アジア太平洋、ひいては世界経済に貢献できます。CPTPP加盟国ともウィンウィンの関係を成り立たせることができると信じています。

.
陳前副總統透過預錄影片感謝美國、日本、立陶宛、斯洛伐克、捷克及波蘭援贈台灣疫苗,大仁哥說「台灣模式」向世界證明,現代民主國家可以秉持公開透明並運用科技對抗疫情。耶路薩冷聖墓騎士也認同美國「重建美好未來」(Build Back Better)的共同願景,教廷宗座科學院院士表示,台灣樂願支持美國美方規劃的「全球衛生安全財務中介基金」。
.
台灣會繼續以具體行動與所有理念相近國家共同合作消弭疫情。

在台灣最需要的時候,日本捐贈5次疫苗,我們這次回贈1萬台血氧儀與1008台製氧機給日本,如同台灣日本關係協會邱義仁會長所說:盡點棉薄之力;也如唐鳳政務委員所言:持續創造善的循環。

在台灣最需要的時候,日本捐贈5次疫苗,我們這次回贈1萬台血氧儀與1008台製氧機給日本,如同台灣日本關係協會邱義仁會長所說:盡點棉薄之力;也如唐鳳政務委員所言:持續創造善的循環。

台灣盡棉薄之力 持續創造善的循環

如同日本首相菅義偉所言,每次面對自然災害和疫情的威脅,#台灣 與 #日本 本著人道主義精神同心協力,培養出堅定的友情。蔡總統也說,#台灣與日本的羈絆是超越政治與經濟戰略的存在。

在台灣最需要的時候,日本捐贈5次疫苗,我們這次回贈1萬台血氧儀與1008台製氧機給日本,如同台灣日本關係協會邱義仁會長所說:盡點棉薄之力;也如唐鳳政務委員所言:持續創造善的循環。

就如同漫畫鬼滅之刃中提到的:「 因為我們是夥伴,是情同手足的關係。」,台日關係將會因為互助更加堅定,不管遇到任何的困難,都能一起攜手面對。

#台日友好相互支援

菅義偉首相が言うように、日本と台湾は自然災害や感染症の脅威に向き合うたび、人道的見地から互いに助け合うことで友情を育んできました。そして、蔡英文総統は「台湾と日本の絆が政治や経済的な戦略を超えるものだ」をツイートしました。

外交部は5回にわたってワクチンを供与してくれた日本へのお礼として、パルスオキシメーター1万個と酸素濃縮器1008台を寄贈することを決めました。

寄贈式典には、台湾日本関係協会の邱義仁会長、日本台湾交流協会の泉裕泰代表とデジタル担当大臣オードリー・タン氏が参加しました。邱義仁会長は式典で「微力ながら役に立てれば幸いだ」と述べました。オードリー・タン氏は、引き続き台湾と日本の善の循環を生み出していきたいと語りました。

「俺たちは仲間だからさ。兄弟みたいなものだからさ。」―これは『鬼滅の刃』のセリフです。台湾と日本は手を携えて協力すれば必ずや困難を乗り越えることができると信じています。

#台日友好
#善の循環
#台日の絆が末永く続く
#まさかの時の友こそ真の友

As Japanese Prime Minister Suga Yoshihide said, in the face of the pandemic and natural disasters, #Japan and #Taiwan are ready to assist each other in a humanitarian spirit, building on the friendship between the two countries. This sentiment was echoed by President Tsai Ing-wen who said that the ties between Taiwan and Japan extend far beyond politics and economy.

When Taiwan was in need, Japan donated five batches of vaccines, now we're donating ten thousand oximeters and one thousand and eight oxygen concentrators to our friends in return. As Taiwan-Japan Relations Association Chairman Chiou I-jen said, "Every little helps." Digital Minister Audrey Tang also called for the virtuous cycle to continue.

The Taiwan-Japan relationship will only be firmer by helping one another through thick and thin.

To Freedom / You and your mother tongue
.
#Taiwan is something of a melting pot in terms of language. We’ve been working hard to reduce the historical stigma attached to some of these languages and to ensure that they are not lost to future generations. New languages are also being carried to our shores by new arrivals, creating a linguistically dynamic young generation of bilingual or multilingual children and young adults. These young people benefit from the ability to engage in intergenerational communication, important in the preservation of cultural identity and for a more cohesive society.

敬 自由 / 勇於說母語的你

無論是母親還是父親的舌頭
台灣都希望自己的人民能夠勇敢說出各種語言

台灣是語言的熔爐

不同時代的人們將自己的語言帶上岸
在 #語言平權 這條路上我們歷經努力
希望能夠尊重與確保台灣的多元語言文化
讓大家都能自由的使用自己認同的語言
.
外交部在今年聯合國推案影片《敬 自由》中

.
『在這裡
所有台灣固有族群使用的自然語言
都是國家語言
不管在家裡說的是哪種母語
在學校都有老師繼續教你
跟阿公阿嬤聊天不用翻譯』
.
若聯合國的重要任務之一是要讓國家尊重人民的權利
台灣的夥伴價值,值得聯合國重視。

These young people benefit from the ability to engage in intergenerational communication, important in the preservation of cultural identity and for a more cohesive society.

We recently featured an Indonesian teacher in Taiwan--a new arrival--and one of her students--part of this multilingual younger generation--in “To Freedom,” our promotional short to mark the #UNGA76. They tell the story of Taiwan’s respect for all its languages when they say:

“Here, the natural languages of Taiwan’s inherent ethnic groups are official languages. Regardless of what language you speak at home, you’ll continue to be taught it at school. I don’t need a translator to talk with my grandparents.”

If the UN states part of its mission as encouraging countries around the world to respect the rights of their people, Taiwan's vision of global partnership can serve as a valuable reference.

"美國和台灣享有共同的民主價值"/ "The United States and Taiwan share common democratic values"

9月15日是國際民主日!在國際民主日的今天,我們要來慶祝並彰顯能夠響應人民意願、造福所有人民的制度— #民主制度。

台灣是先進的民主體制、主要的經濟體、科技巨擘,同時也是展現開放社會能有效控制新冠疫情的絕佳例證。

美國和台灣享有共同的民主價值,美國在台協會也持續致力於促進並深化美台夥伴關係。#DayofDemocracy #DemocracyDelivers

Today, on the International Day of Democracy, we celebrate democracy – a system that responds to the will of the people for the benefit of all. Taiwan is a leading democracy, as well as a major economy, a technology powerhouse, and a shining example of how an open society can effectively contain COVID-19. The United States and Taiwan share common democratic values and AIT is committed to advancing and deepening the U.S.-Taiwan partnership. #DayofDemocracy #DemocracyDelivers

外交部吳部長為華府智庫 #全球台灣研究中心 GTI 線上研討會預錄的演講中,呼籲 #民主陣營團結反制威權國家的威脅。

民主國家必須團結一致捍衛我們的價值

外交部吳部長為華府智庫 #全球台灣研究中心 GTI 線上研討會預錄的演講中,呼籲 #民主陣營團結反制威權國家的威脅。

當前威權國家正發動一場反民主的意識型態戰爭,台灣身處民主對抗威權主義的最前線,也是與美國等理念相近國家共享民主、自由及人權等普世價值的夥伴。尤其,立陶宛因為深化與台灣的關係而遭到特定威權國家的打壓,美國已挺身表達對立陶宛的支持,我們歡迎美國等主要民主國家對越來越多的威脅,不斷示警,並透過雙邊和多邊管道正面回擊。

在威權國家試圖重塑以規則為基礎的國際體系當下,吳部長表示台灣非常願意與世界分享我們應對中國威脅的作法。

「只要團結一致,民主必將勝利,台灣必將勝利。」

MOFA Minister Joseph Wu pre-recorded a keynote speech for the “US-Taiwan Relations: Forging a 21st Century Agenda” online forum hosted by Washington-based policy incubator Global Taiwan Institute.

As Lithuania faces backlash from several authoritarian regimes, Minister Wu stressed the need for democracies to work in solidarity to defend our values against these authoritarian threats and Taiwan's role as an indispensable partner for the #UnitedStates and other democracies in today’s interconnected world.

He said that #Taiwan is more than willing to share our knowledge on ways to tackle China’s united-front tactics and threats to democracy as growing authoritarian power attempts to reshape the rules-based international system.

"By working together, democracy will prevail, and Taiwan will prevail."

Liou Jia-yuan is a diving instructor who doesn't believe that a disability should hold people back from exploring the wonders of the deep. A person with a disability himself, Liou, like many others, has benefited from the passing of the UN Convention on the Rights of Disabled Persons Implementation Law in 2014 in #Taiwan.

He said "Here, people are always there to help you reach your goals. When I express myself on my stage no one pities me. They treat me with fairness and respect. On this island and in its seas, in Taiwan, I’m free!”

If the UN states part of its mission as encouraging countries around the world to respect the rights of their people, Taiwan's vision of global partnership can serve as a valuable reference.

To Freedom / Liou Jia-yuan

Liou Jia-yuan is a diving instructor who doesn't believe that a disability should hold people back from exploring the wonders of the deep. A person with a disability himself, Liou, like many others, has benefited from the passing of the UN Convention on the Rights of Disabled Persons Implementation Law in 2014 in #Taiwan. Following the passing of this law, The League for Persons with Disabilities started a program facilitating people with disabilities to dive, and eventually, this led to the formation of the Taiwan Disability Scuba Diving Association (#TaiwanDSD).

We recently featured Liou in “To Freedom,” our promotional short to mark the #UNGA76. We’re sure he speaks for many of his students when he says:

“Here, people are always there to help you reach your goals. When I express myself on my stage no one pities me. They treat me with fairness and respect. On this island and in its seas, in Taiwan, I’m free!”

不好意思!僅不斷表示抗議,更已不斷報警,而檢察機關與警車非不常偶遇,而警車與警員更非不屬私人保鑣,但究竟司法在瞎忙什麼?!能反應與抗議,且於國內與國外;惟,政府與司法的態度均一樣,透過法扶會、律師公會亦相同(民國99、100年);更是兩大包公文、500多封臉書(當然非每一封都反映此不法),更陳情於不法解決而透過法律依據(告了5次發、一天最多報5次警,而警車一舔最多10餘趟),且當然僅因為兩公約施行法、聯合國憲章嗎?卻更於總統府與法務部,且立法院等不合理函覆,且更有上過一次電視!至國內法、與國際法,對於一個法律門外漢,而於自幼早可能受害(已40多歲,卻後來之資歷!),僅更屬得罪官方,而非可僅國家試驗品?!以上,謝謝您!
