Jul 12, 2017 Business & Finance Comments Off on Tsai: Taiwan must learn from mistakes of history to move forward
President Tsai Ing-wen says the public must come to understand the mistakes of Taiwanese history in order to build a better future.
Tsai was speaking Wednesday during a press conference marking thirty years since the lifting of martial law on Taiwan. The end of martial law signaled the end of a period when the government banned free speech and persecuted political dissidents.
Tsai said that today's Taiwan allows its people the freedom to voice their opinion on political issues and criticize the government's policies. She also said Taiwan's indigenous people are now free to promote their own languages. Tsai said that none of this was possible during the years of martial. She said Taiwan's people have earned their freedom themselves, and that she hopes that they will come to fully understand the nation's past mistakes in order to build a better future.
