Focus Taiwan: Full text of President Tsai’s New Year’s Day speech

Taipei, Jan. 1 (CNA) President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) delivered her 2020 New Year’s address Wednesday in the Presidential Office reception hall.

She stated that in the new year, “we are going to unite the Taiwanese people, and continue pressing forward to ensure more people are cared for, keep improving our economy, and make our democracy, freedom, and sovereignty stronger and more sustainable.”

She also reiterated the “four musts” and “four understandings,” emphasizing that the passage of the Anti-infiltration Act will not affect freedom, infringe on human rights, or affect normal economic exchanges. It will only more strongly protect Taiwan’s democracy and freedom, and will not affect any regular cross-strait exchanges or interactions, she said.
