Full Transcript (English translation)
Hello everyone, I am Jenny Bloomfield.
As Australia’s Representative, it has been an honour to contribute to the Australia-Taiwan relationship.
Over the past three years, I have seen first-hand Taiwan’s rich diversity and resilience and I have experienced the warmth, friendship, support and hospitality of the Taiwanese people.
Despite challenges, the Australia-Taiwan relationship is stronger than ever.
We share values, rich Indigenous histories and cultures, open, diverse societies and a commitment to a peaceful, stable and prosperous region.
We have long-standing business links, and the close connections between our peoples enrich our culture, making our societies more resilient and our economies more prosperous.
I am also pleased to have the opportunity to experience Taiwan’s natural beauty, cultural diversity and Taiwan’s commitment to its democracy and freedoms.
Taiwan’s achievements are worthy of admiration and respect.
Though I will soon be departing Taiwan, we will remain friends with Taiwan for life, and Taiwan will always be in my heart.
Thank you, and hope to meet again!
