Thanks again, here is one more. BMO

While cultivating Taiwan's film industry domestically, we are also reaching out to the world actively promoting globalization. Taiwan will always stand tall, reach out and open its door to the world. Quoting from President Chen, "The people of Taiwan will not be downgraded, we will not be treated as a local government, and Taiwan will no longer be marginalized."

As Co-Chair said, "The UNESCO process holds out the promise of securing a true legally-binding international convention - a treaty- that would reaffirm the sovereign right of countries to develop, implement and maintain policies intended to ensure a space for their domestic culture.

"The challenge now is to support this process to make sure that the resulting instrument is a true convention and not simply a declaration or recommendation, and to get the convention in place sooner rather than later, ideally by 2005."

How could we mobilize cultural professionals throughout the world? How can we support the movement for an international convention on cultural diversity? And the movement to deepen democracy, reform government, promote internationalization, and invest for the long term? As Lao Tse said, a journey of one thousand miles must begin with the first step, it is through proactive liberalization with effective management and replacing "antagonistic exclusion" with "constructive cooperation."

This is an important meeting. How kind of you to let me come. Thank you very much.

You're very welcome. Make sure you look at my editorial comments and questions in brackets. I certainly don't want to change the meaning that was intended. :shock:
