“As Co-Chairs of the Congressional Taiwan Caucus we wish to extend our heartfelt congratulations to President Tsai Ing-wen on her reelection as the President of Taiwan.

“We stand ready to work with her Administration to strengthen our close relationship, deepen our economic partnership, foster peace and prosperity for the people of Taiwan, and promote a free and open Indo-Pacific.
