This Press Division is responsible for providing up-to-date information about Taiwan to the mass media and other journalism-related services. This includes corresponding with local and national media networks, as well as developing close working relationships with local journalists, the mainstream media, think tanks, and the academic community.
Our primary goal is promoting mutual understanding between the US and the ROC. This is accomplished through a number of channels including, but not limited to, responding to requests for information from the media and educational institutions, writing editorial articles that clarify or explain ROC policy, and hosting or coordinating seminars/conferences on subjects related to Washington-Taipei or cross-strait relations. Through these actions it is hoped that we will generate discussion and insight concerning how to improve understanding and cooperation between both countries. Additionally, to help people in the United States better understand the current socio-political developments occurring on the island of Taiwan, we invite ROC government officials and scholars to visit the west coast to communicate with the opinion leaders and our supportive friends.
For the public at large, we stock a large number of informational audio/video tapes, DVDs about Taiwan and its culture. We also provide a number of brochures, booklets, and DVDs that provide facts and statistics about Taiwan to information seekers.
The areas served by this office include Southern California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Hawaii.
Readers in the US and Canada can subscribe to Taiwan Panorama Magazine (http://www.taiwan-panorama.com/), Taiwan Journal (TJ), Taiwan Review (TR), and purchase some bilingual books through this office. The direct-dial number for subscription information is (888) 829-3866, Fax: (323) 782-8763.
