                        Tuesday, April 12, 2016

  Mr. CARTER of Georgia. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to mark the 37th 
Anniversary of the Taiwan Relations Act and to recognize the long-
standing U.S.-Taiwan relations. For the past 37 years, the Taiwan 
Relations Act has served as the cornerstone of the friendship between 
the United States and Taiwan that has been a mutually beneficial 
economic, cultural, and strategic relationship.

  The United States and Taiwan share many of the same values, including 
democracy, freedom of speech and rule of law. The relations between our 
two countries have grown to include areas of trade, national security, 
and people-to-people exchanges. Taiwan has also joined the United 
States in providing essential humanitarian aid and promoting peace 
throughout the world.
  As a member of the Congressional Taiwan Caucus, I am continuously 
supportive of efforts to strengthen the friendship between our two 
countries.
  In commemorating the 37th Anniversary of the Taiwan Relations Act, I 
commend the work that has been done between our two countries to 
further democracy, and I look forward to strengthening our relationship 
with Taiwan in the future.
