*Global Cooperation Training Framework
Good morning, Ladies and Gentlemen.
Today, on behalf of the Japan-Taiwan Exchange Association, it is my great pleasure to co-host this GCTF workshop with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Justice Investigation Bureau and the American Institute in Taiwan.
When I first arrived in Taiwan in July 2014, I was struck by how Taiwan is increasingly recognized as a vitally important partner in the region and the international community by a wide range of countries worldwide, not just the United States and Japan.
Taiwan and the United Sates launched GCTF, Global Cooperation and Training Framework, as a visionary scheme in 2015. This is the first time that the Japan-Taiwan Exchange Association has co-hosted a GCTF workshop. We are delighted to be involved and are committed to doing our utmost to contribute to the promotion of this initiative. It is our firm belief that GCTF will play a major role in the sharing of knowledge and experience for our common agenda and the strengthening of cooperative ties on a practical basis.
I would like to close these remarks by extending my best wishes for the success of this workshop.
Thank you for your attention.
