One Response to “House Committee on Foreign Affairs Hearing on “Why Taiwan Matters””

  1. Charles Lin

    I know that many of us in the Taiwanese-American community used the website of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs (HCFA) to submit questions to Chairman Ros-Lehtinen and her staff before the June 16th Hearing. Has anyone heard whether the Committee will be issuing formal written replies to all the questions submitted? According to the information on the HCFA website, it was agreed during the Hearing “to answer as many questions as possible.” However, I am currently unable to find any ANSWERS to questions submitted by members of the public online. Can anyone provide relevant details??? (written Sat. June 18th in Taipei, Taiwan)
