First Taiwan-born US Cabinet member revisits her roots on Taipei visit (2014/11/14)

America’s first Taiwan-born Cabinet member is in Taiwan to join her father in accepting honorary degrees from National Chiao Tung University. Elaine Chao also used the opportunity to meet Premier Jiang Yi-huah, who urged Chao and her husband, Senate Majority Leader-elect Mitch McConnell, to work toward improving US-Taiwan relations.

Taipei-born Elaine Chao immigrated to the United States with her family when Chao was in second grade.

Elaine Chao
Former US Secretary of Labor
And I will always have very good memories of my initial years here in Taipei.

After receiving an MBA from Harvard, Chao and her father established a scholarship that would help ethnic-Chinese exchange students.

Elaine Chao
Former US Secretary of Labor
My father and my mother always cared about their roots and the Chinese people. And we hope that this will help Chinese people throughout the world improve relationships and promote a more harmonious and a more peaceful world.

In 2001, then-President George W. Bush named Chao his secretary of labor, making Chao America’s first Taiwan-born Cabinet member. Her husband Mitch McConnell will soon become the Senate majority leader.

Mitch McConnell
Senate Majority Leader-elect
We can have real change in Washington, real change. And that’s just what I intend to deliver. It’s time to go in a new direction.

Jiang Yi-huah
Premier
I hope that in the future, madam can continue to jointly work hard to promote Taiwan-US relations and the well-being of Taiwan.

In particular, Jiang expressed hope that this US power couple could attempt to pave passage of another US arms deal.
