Deeply Cultivate Japan, Strengthen GFCBW
In the beginning of 2012, I joined the GFCBW as a member of the Japanese chapter and engaged in a relationship with the federation; In October of the same year, I assisted the 7th Chairwoman, Nancy Shih, in organizing the Osaka World Annual Conference in Japan. I thus have had the opportunity to learn the style of Chairwomans and all sisters of the federation; In 2017, I was assigned to organize the Kansai Branch of Japan to bring together the sisterhood of Chinese businesswomen in Japan. Later on, I led branch members to learn and grow on the global GFCBW exchange platform, and in 2020, I was honored to earn the Huaguan Award. All these things have opened up my vision of life, so that I can observe the life value of the world's outstanding Chinese business sisters.
For the past ten years, the experience and learning in the GFCBW Garden have gradually advanced me to a higher realm in life. It helped me to be appointed as a Commissioner of the Overseas Community Affairs Council of the Republic of China in early 2021 as well as to be elected as the President of the Japan Taiwanese Chamber of Commerce & Industry for two consecutive terms. At the same time, GFCBW strengthens my courage to pursue my dreams and return to school again.
It is a great honor to be invited by Chairwoman Chuang Chuwei to serve as the 12th Vice Chairwoman of the federation, this appointment gives me the opportunity to feed back to the GFCBW for its years’ cultivation. Chairwoman Chuang is a former winner of the Huaguan Award whom I appreciate and admired. Her self-confidence and elegant temperament, radiating from the inside out, as well as her spirit of courage to take challenges and constantly set no limits for herself, make people eager for her stewardship. I look forward to the next two years of office under the guidance and leadership of Chairwoman Chuang, so that I can take responsibility and live up to her trust.
There are nine GFCBW branches in Asia, including Japan, Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam, Malaysia, and Cambodia. South Korea, which is close to Japan, and Indonesia, Myanmar, and Philippines, which have a large Chinese population, afford us additional scope for us to develop. I look forward to the sisters working together to spread their chapters in these countries and strengthen the GFCBW organization even more!
