Tsai Highlights Her Achievement as President|蔡總統執政3週年 細數加薪減稅政績

Marking her third year in office, president Tsai Ing-wen held a press conference to share her journey and highlight her achievements during her three years. She also commented on the China-US trade war, saying it will make MIT, or "Made in Taiwan" a popular term again. She said she will lead the effort in upgrading Taiwan's industry, and hopes that she gets to hold a Taiwan Exposition during her next term in order to showcase Taiwan's soft power. Her intent to run for re-election goes without saying.

During a press conference that marks Tsai Ing-wen's three years serving as the president, she talked about her experience working in office. She also stresses that she's confident that she will reap the reward in her fourth year. She also highlighted her achievements by listing 10 ten policies that led to higher income, reduced tax and more investment.

All it takes is a bit more patience, and you will see that we have done much more than you can imagine. I'd also like to address those who have looked down on Taiwan in the past three years, you won't get what you have hoped for.

Other than the backlash she faced when pushing for reforms, Tsai also faces pressure from China, especially after Chinese President Xi Jinping proposed a "one country two systems" plan for Taiwan. Tsai reiterated her stance on cross-strait relations, which is safeguarding Taiwan's freedom and democracy.

(Mainland China) is very vocal in expressing its "one country two systems" plan. However, we need to loudly and confidently say that we have only one country, and that is the Republic of China.

The latest survey has shown that the legalization of same-sex marriage has garnered more support among younger voters, and boosted Tsai's support rating. However, the passing of the same-sex marriage bill has also aggravated clashes between different groups in the society. Asked about whether the latest development will affect her chance for reelection, Tsai said the most difficult hurdle had been overcame.

We will continue to hold discussion on the matter. But we have already overcome the hurdle. More discussions will ensue, but I believe we've gotten over the greatest hurdle.

As trade tension rise between China and the United States, Tsai stressed that this would be an opportunity to make MIT, or "Made in Taiwan", a popular term again. She said she will lead the effort in upgrading Taiwan's industry. She also said she hopes to hold a Taiwan Expo during her next term in order to showcase Taiwan's soft power to the world. It goes without saying that Tsai is aiming to run for a second term in office.

520執政3年的記者會上,總統蔡英文述說著這3年來的心路歷程,卻也強調,有信心在第4年的時候,一起收穫。她還提出加薪減稅、擴大投資等的10大進步關鍵字,彰顯政績。

總統 蔡英文表示:「只要多一點的耐心,你就會看見,我們做的事情,比你想像的,多很多,我也要告訴3年來,不斷唱衰台灣的人,你們不會得逞。」

改革造成的壓力外,還有來自中國的壓力,有鑑於中國國家主席習近平,提出一國兩制、台灣方案,加大對台的壓力,兩岸關係上,蔡總統再次重申堅守民主自由的立場。

總統 蔡英文表示:「(中國)一國兩制喊的很大聲,但是我們要有自信的,大聲的說,我們只有一個國家,就是中華民國。」

此外,最新民調顯示,同性婚姻法案完成三讀,贏得年輕人支持,讓蔡總統近兩個月民調回升,不過,社會也因為同婚議題,不斷衝突,媒體追問是否會影響選情,蔡總統只強調,最難的一關已經度過。

總統 蔡英文表示:「我們持續的會有這些討論,但是我們已經跨過了一關,那後續的討論會持續,但是我相信最難的那一關,我們已經跨過去了。」

中美貿易戰磨擦激烈,蔡總統強調,讓「台灣製造MIT」、再次成為熱門關鍵字,她將帶領MIT產業升級,也希望下個任期,能舉辦台灣博覽會,讓世界看到台灣的軟實力,爭取連任的心意,不言可喻。
