Bruce Fuh (傅正綱), director-general of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in San Francisco, said that US-Taiwan relations are now at their best and Taiwan’s visa-free status is expected to help strengthen bilateral exchanges and economic and trade relations.

Two large depictions of the “Techno Prince,” a Taoist religious icon that dances to modern electronic music, were also at the welcome party to greet the Taiwanese travelers.
