Vice president, WTO representative elected to NAS
Taipei, May 3 (CNA) Taiwan's Vice President Chen Chien-jen and Cyrus Chu, Taiwan's representative to the World Trade Organization (WTO), have been elected new members of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences (NAS), the most prestigious scientific organization in the United States.
The NAS announced the election of 84 new members and 21 foreign associates on Tuesday, in recognition of their distinguished and continuing achievements in original research, including Chen and Chu, two academics from Academia Sinica, Taiwan's top research institute.
Chen said on his Facebook page on Wednesday that he received a text message on Tuesday night through Line App from Academia Sinica President James Liao congratulating him on his election to the NAS, followed by an e-mail from NAS Foreign Secretary John Hildebrand officially notifying him of his election.
The vice president called the achievement a blessing from the Lord and said he would pray with his wife for closer Taiwan-U.S. relations and improved cross-strait ties.
However, after learning that both his and Chu's nationality was designated "Taiwan, China" on the list of new members on the NAS website, Chen described the designation as unacceptable. Academia Sinica is currently talking with the U.S. institute to correct the entry, according to Presidential Office spokesman Sidney Lin.
