Government supports the establishment of the Taiwan Australia
Alumni Association (TAAA). The President of Academia Sinica,
Dr Lee Yuan-Tseh, has kindly agreed to be its Chief Patron.
Currently there are 150 members, and we expect there will
be steady growth in numbers. TAAA was unofficially launched
on 29 June 2002, at a ceremony at the Agora Garden Hotel
in Taipei, with the support and assistance of the Australian
Commerce and Industry Office.
The purposes of TAAA are:
bilateral relations between Australia and Taiwan through
Taiwanese students who have studied in Australia;
provide a forum for Taiwanese students to retain their
connections to Australia;
advance the internationalisation of education; and
maintain contacts among students returned from Australia,
to assist them socially and professionally
