Fu-mei Chang, Ph. D.The Overseas Chinese Affairs Council (OCAC) was placed directly under National Government authority when it was founded in 1926. It was made subordinate to the Executive Yuan in 1932. For the past 75 years, the ROC's overseas compatriot affairs work has kept pace with the national situation and the evolving state of overseas compatriot communities. While the OCAC has continued to innovate and improve its programs and policies as it keeps up with the times, the ROC government's care and concern for overseas compatriots has remained unchanged with a constant commitment to overseas service.

Since I assumed this post on May 20, 2000, I have been keenly aware that "overseas service work must rely on limited resources to achieve the maximum real benefits." I have consistently sought to draw on the resources of the government and the private sector, to strengthen services aimed at overseas compatriots, assist in the resolution of overseas development problems, enhance the promotion of our diversified cultures, encourage overseas people to put down roots and join their local mainstream society, and use various channels of communication to win the hearts of our overseas compatriots. Ultimately, I have sought to unite the strength of all our people in Taiwan and abroad to help the government maintain its national security and pursue sustainable development.

The focus of contemporary overseas compatriot affairs work is on providing diversified services, including liaison services aimed at overseas compatriots and their organizations, overseas cultural and educational work, assistance to overseas businesses, guidance to overseas students returning for further studies, overseas compatriot certification services, correspondence education, and overseas news broadcasting and information dissemination, etc. Our service offices are located in Taiwan and abroad; our service channels reach from the ground to the sky--from traditional media to modern network technology. Wherever they may happen to live, all overseas compatriots who identify with the ROC, love Taiwan, and support the government can receive our services.

As we all know, overseas compatriots have made a tremendous contribution to the ROC's founding and development. They have long played a pivotal role in spurring democratic reforms in Taiwan. Overseas compatriots are a most valuable asset in support of Taiwan's survival and development. At the dawn of the 21st century, we will continue to strengthen our liaison service work and promote identification with Taiwan under the principles of freedom, democracy, and human rights. We hope that all overseas compatriots work together with the government, and we wish that the entire collective overseas compatriot communities --regardless of individuals' political views or ethnic origins--unite in harmony for the common good.

This profile provides an overview of our organization, duties, and principal services. For more information, please do not hesitate to contact us by phone or e-mail. All comments are welcome.
