Sunday, on the eve of her third anniversary as the country’s leader, while urging the voters to give her more time to transform Taiwan for the better.
During a visit to the southern municipal city of Kaohsiung, Tsai, who was inaugurated as president May 20, 2016, told reporters that her team has been working hard over the last three years in laying the foundations for the country’s growth.
Asked how she rates her performance over those years, Tsai said presidents usually don’t rate themselves. However, she added, recent surveys show that public satisfaction with her and her team has been increasing.
Tsai said she has done things that her predecessors were not able to do and that although some sectors have been affected by reforms, the foundation for the country’s development has been laid after three years. [FULL STORY]
