CONGRESSIONAL RECORD—HOUSEH3455 May 7, 2019 After receiving the Army commenda-tion medal and an honorable discharge, he returned to his hometown of Brownsville. He helped develop the area’s future as assistant port director for the Port of Brownsville. Mr. Rusteberg began his 40-year banking career at Bank of the South-west. Shortly thereafter, he opened the first International Bank of Commerce bank facility in Cameron County in 1984. A champion of education, Mr. Rusteberg led successful efforts for the Brownsville Independent School Dis-trict to secure funding for our schools. He and his family established the very first scholarship endowment at the University of Texas-Brownsville, now University of Texas Rio Grande Valley. Mr. Rusteberg has been married to Frances Hill for 48 years and has two children, William Rusteberg and Liz Rusteberg Hainley, and two grand-children, Jessie Hainley and Will Hainley. Fred and Frances have been highly active in the community throughout the years and are blessed to call Brownsville home. Mr. Speaker, I thank you for the op-portunity to honor Frederick William Rusteberg. His character and hard work make him a tremendous role model for the citizens of Brownsville, and I am confident his contributions will continue to guide south Texas in a positive direction. I ask my colleagues to join me, his family, and friends in commending his life of service. f JOBS BOOM BEST IN 50 YEARS (Mr. WILSON of South Carolina asked and was given permission to ad-dress the House for 1 minute and to re-vise and extend his remarks.) Mr. WILSON of South Carolina. Mr. Speaker, last Friday’s economic num-bers continue to show that policies championed by the President and Re-publicans are helping the American people succeed: The economy added an incredible 263,000 jobs in April; More than 5.8 million jobs have been created since the election; The unemployment rate fell to 3.6 percent in April, the lowest since De-cember 1969; The employment rate for women is the lowest rate since 1953; The veterans’ unemployment rate fell to 2.3 percent, the lowest rate on record; The employment rate for Americans with a disability fell to the lowest rate on record; Average hourly earnings rose by 3.2 percent over 12 months. Before 2018, wage gains had not reached 3 percent since April 2009. In conclusion, God bless our troops, and we will never forget September the 11th in the global war on terrorism. PRESCRIPTION DRUG PRICING (Ms. GARCIA of Texas asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute.) Ms. GARCIA of Texas. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to address the serious threat that soaring costs of prescription drugs pose to the health and well-being of families. Americans spend more money on pre-scription drug prices per person than any other country in the world. The problem has grown so much that now Americans are paying more for out-of- pocket drugs every year than for hos-pital care. These inflated prices are sapping the strength of our economy and the health of our families. However, this is a challenge, Mr. Speaker, we can begin to tackle in this Congress this year. We can begin to fight this battle now by targeting abu-sive barriers to entry for cheaper ge-neric drugs and taking steps to sim-plify pricing in our overly complicated system. That is why, last week, my col-leagues and I on the Judiciary Com-mittee voted to refer four bills for con-sideration that will give generic drug manufacturers greater access to our markets, increase competition, and save lives in the process. I call on all my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to support this bipar-tisan measure. f NATIONAL SKILLED NURSING CARE WEEK (Mr. THOMPSON of Pennsylvania asked and was given permission to ad-dress the House for 1 minute and to re-vise and extend his remarks.) Mr. THOMPSON of Pennsylvania. Mr. Speaker, next week is National Skilled Nursing Care Week, and hun-dreds of nursing home administrators will gather at State College, Pennsyl-vania, for the 2019 Spring Health Care Conference. Hosted by Central Pennsylvania Edu-cational Resources, the conference will allow nursing home administrators the opportunity to exchange ideas and gain information from knowledgeable speakers. This year’s theme for National Skilled Nursing Care Week is ‘‘Live Soulfully,’’ which will celebrate skilled nursing centers and their residents and staff by showcasing how they achieve happy minds and healthy souls. Whether it is planting, cooking, read-ing, or listening to music, these cen-ters pay it forward by helping individ-uals find happiness to improve quality of life. Mr. Speaker, before coming to Con-gress, I worked nearly three decades as a recreational therapist, a rehab serv-ices manager, and a licensed nursing home administrator. I know firsthand how important quality of life is and how each and every person at a nursing home can impact the lives of residents. National Skilled Nursing Care Week thanks and celebrates caregivers for their tireless work to care for others. They truly make an impact. f COMMUNICATION FROM THE CLERK OF THE HOUSE The SPEAKER pro tempore laid be-fore the House the following commu-nication from the Clerk of the House of Representatives: OFFICEOFTHECLERK, HOUSEOFREPRESENTATIVES, Washington, DC, May 6, 2019.

CONGRESSIONAL RECORD—HOUSEH3456 May 7, 2019 (3) The security of Taiwan and its democ-racy are key elements of continued peace and stability of the greater Indo-Pacific re-gion, which is in the political, security, and economic interests of the United States. (4) The People’s Republic of China is cur-rently engaged in a comprehensive military modernization campaign to enhance the power-projection capabilities of the People’s Liberation Army and its ability to conduct joint operations, which is shifting the mili-tary balance of power across the Taiwan Strait. (5) Taiwan and its diplomatic partners con-tinue to face sustained pressure and coercion from the People’s Republic of China, which seeks to isolate Taiwan from the inter-national community. (6) It is the policy of the United States to reinforce its commitments to Taiwan under the Taiwan Relations Act in a manner con-sistent with the ‘‘Six Assurances’’ and in ac-cordance with the United States ‘‘One China’’ policy. (7) In the Taiwan Travel Act, which be-came law on March 16, 2018, Congress ob-served that the ‘‘self-imposed restrictions that the United States maintains on high- level visits’’ between the United States and Taiwan have resulted in insufficient high- level communication. SEC. 3. SENSE OF CONGRESS. It is the sense of Congress that— (1) Taiwan is a vital part of the United States Free and Open Indo-Pacific Strategy; (2) the United States Government— (A) supports Taiwan’s continued pursuit of asymmetric capabilities and concepts; and (B) urges Taiwan to increase its defense spending in order to fully resource its de-fense strategy; and (3) the United States should conduct reg-ular sales and transfers of defense articles to Taiwan in order to enhance its self-defense capabilities, particularly its efforts to de-velop and integrate asymmetric capabilities, including undersea warfare and air defense capabilities, into its military forces. SEC. 4. TAIWAN’S INCLUSION IN INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS. (a) SENSEOFCONGRESS.—It is the sense of Congress that the People’s Republic of Chi-na’s attempts to dictate the terms of Tai-wan’s participation in international organi-zations, has, in many cases, resulted in Tai-wan’s exclusion from such organizations even when statehood is not a requirement, and that such exclusion— (1) is detrimental to global health, civilian air safety, and efforts to counter transnational crime; (2) negatively impacts the safety and secu-rity of citizens globally; and (3) negatively impacts the security of Tai-wan and its democracy. (b) STATEMENTOFPOLICY.—It is the policy of the United States to advocate for Tai-wan’s meaningful participation in the United Nations, the World Health Assembly, the International Civil Aviation Organization, the International Criminal Police Organiza-tion, and other international bodies, as ap-propriate, and to advocate for Taiwan’s membership in the Food and Agriculture Or-ganization, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, and other international organizations for which statehood is not a requirement for member-ship. SEC. 5. REVIEW OF DEPARTMENT OF STATE TAI-WAN GUIDELINES. (a) INGENERAL.—Not later than 180 days after the date of the enactment of this Act, the Secretary of State shall conduct a review of the Department of State’s guidance that governs relations with Taiwan, including the periodic memorandum entitled ‘‘Guidelines on Relations with Taiwan’’ and related docu-ments, and reissue such guidance to execu-tive branch departments and agencies. (b) SENSEOFCONGRESS.—It is the sense of Congress that the Department of State’s guidance regarding relations with Taiwan— (1) should be crafted with the intent to deepen and expand United States-Taiwan re-lations, and be based on the value, merits, and importance of the United States-Taiwan relationship; (2) should be crafted giving due consider-ation to the fact that Taiwan is governed by a representative democratic government that is peacefully constituted through free and fair elections that reflect the will of the people of Taiwan, and that Taiwan is a free and open society that respects universal human rights and democratic values; and (3) should ensure that the conduct of rela-tions with Taiwan reflects the longstanding, comprehensive, and values-based relation-ship the United States shares with Taiwan, and contribute to the peaceful resolution of cross-Strait issues. (c) REPORTINGREQUIREMENTS.—Not later than 180 days after the date of the enactment of this Act, the Secretary of State shall sub-mit to the Committee on Foreign Relations of the Senate and the Committee on Foreign Affairs of the House of Representatives a re-port that includes a description of— (1) the results of the review pursuant to subsection (a) of the Department of State’s guidance on relations with Taiwan, including a copy of the reissued ‘‘Guidelines of Rela-tions with Taiwan’’ memorandum; and (2) the implementation of the Taiwan Travel Act (Public Law 115–135) and any changes to guidance on relations with Tai-wan that are the result of such implementa-tion. The SPEAKER pro tempore. Pursu-ant to the rule, the gentleman from New Jersey (Mr. SIRES) and the gen-tleman from Texas (Mr. MCCAUL) each will control 20 minutes. The Chair recognizes the gentleman from New Jersey. GENERALLEAVE Mr. SIRES. Mr. Speaker, I ask unani-mous consent that all Members have 5 legislative days in which to revise and extend their remarks and include ex-traneous material on H.R. 2002, the Taiwan Assurance Act of 2019. The SPEAKER pro tempore. Is there objection to the request of the gen-tleman from New Jersey? There was no objection. Mr. SIRES. Mr. Speaker, I yield my-self such time as I may consume. I rise in strong support of H.R. 2002, the Taiwan Assurance Act of 2019. Last month, we celebrated the 40th anniversary of the Taiwan Relations Act, so it is fitting that we are stand-ing here today to bring two important measures to the floor, including this one, to affirm the unwavering, bipar-tisan congressional support for Taiwan. Taiwan serves as a steadfast and sig-nificant partner to the United States, not just in the Indo-Pacific, but also around the world. It makes substantial contributions to the international community by tackling global chal-lenges, from combating terrorism to promoting public health; and it holds close the values we cherish the most, standing as a beacon of democracy in Asia. However, over the years, China has attempted to weaken Taiwan’s stand-ing in the world. It has restricted Tai-wan’s access to international organiza-tions and poached its diplomatic allies, and it has attempted to shape the way the United States conducts its rela-tionship with Taiwan, a dynamic we have, regretfully, allowed. We must not—we cannot—stand for this. We cannot sit idly by and allow one of our most valued democratic partners to be sidelined on the world stage. It is time to revisit the guide-lines we use in the conduct of our rela-tionship with Taiwan and ensure that the United States is doing all it can to fulfill our commitments to Taiwan. That is why I am proud to support and cosponsor the Taiwan Assurance Act. This measure asks the State De-partment to take a closer look at self- imposed guidelines we follow with Tai-wan and assess them based on merit, not on what would appease China. As proud co-chair of the Taiwan Cau-cus, I strongly support the passage of H.R. 2002, and I reserve the balance of my time. Mr. MCCAUL. Mr. Speaker, I yield myself such time as I may consume. I rise in support of the Taiwan Assur-ance Act, a bill introduced to deepen and expand U.S.-Taiwan relations. I want to thank Chairman ENGELand all those on the other side of the aisle and the gentleman from New Jersey for agreeing to be the lead Democratic co-sponsors of this important bill that deepens our ties with Taiwan. Of note, the bill urges the State De-partment to eliminate self-imposed re-strictions on U.S. diplomatic inter-actions with Taiwan and to provide Congress access to those policies for the first time. Prior administrations have applied unnecessary and arbitrary restrictions on their own interactions with officials from Taiwan. At times, these restric-tions expanded, apparently in response to complaints by Communist China. As the body that produced the Tai-wan Relations Act, it is necessary and appropriate for Congress to have awareness and a say in how these poli-cies are made. They go well beyond what is required by the carefully craft-ed TRA, which does not even state that U.S.-Taiwan relations are unofficial. Since the TRA was enacted in 1979, Taiwan’s Government has evolved into a vibrant democracy, while the Chinese Government has become more and more authoritarian. It is improper to restrict relations with Taiwan to avoid offending the Chinese Communist Party, and it is out of step with reality to keep pre-tending that Taiwan is anything other than a fully functioning democracy. Taiwan deserves a more elevated re-lationship with the United States, and I urge my colleagues to join me in re-warding Taiwan’s commitment to de-mocracy by supporting the Taiwan As-surance Act.

国会记录ーー househ34572019年5月7日英国外交委员会全体成员对这项措施的热情支持和对台湾民主的支持。 我把剩余的时间都浪费了。 Sires 先生。 议长先生,我放弃我自己的时间,因为我可以消耗。 我敦促我的同事支持这项措施。 这是一项重要的法案,体现了我们两党对台湾的历史性支持。因此,作为台湾民主党核心小组(Taiwan Caucus)的联席主席,我强烈支持立即通过2002年法案。 议长先生,我把剩下的时间还给你。 德克萨斯州的约翰逊女士。 议长先生,我今天站起来支持《台湾保证法》 ,并承认《台湾关系法》通过40周年。 台湾在过去四十年中取得了巨大的进步,成为民主和个人自由的灯塔。 《台湾保证法》重申美国对台湾的坚定承诺,并采取必要步骤确保美国和台湾人民之间的友谊继续增长。 此外,该法案承认台湾在全球卫生等各个领域的贡献,使其成为美国主张台湾加入联合国和世界卫生大会等其他国际组织的政策。 上个月,我很荣幸和几位同事一起来到台湾,庆祝《台湾回归法》颁布40周年,见证台湾美国研究所新设施的启用。 尽管我们的关系仍然是非官方的,但《台湾旅游法》(Taiwan Travel Act)等现行立法将允许两国政府的高级官员出访并会见他们的政府官员,让双方能够促进和加强我们共有的重要关系。 议长先生,在世界各地迅速变化的时代,我们必须承认和赞赏我们的盟友,他们对民主和人权抱有坚定的信念。 台湾就是这方面的一个典型例子,我赞扬他们在过去四十年中取得的进展。 我期待着看到这种关系继续下去,并随着时间的推移而加强。 临时议长。 问题是关于来自新泽西州的先生(SIRES 先生)提出的动议,即众议院暂停规则,通过法案 h.r. 2002。 这个问题被采纳了,而且(三分之二的人表示赞成)规则被暂停执行,法案获得通过。 重新审议的动议被提交到桌上。 F 重申美国对台湾和执行台湾关系法的承诺。 议长先生,我提议暂时中止规则并同意修改。 273)重申美国对台湾的承诺和对执行台湾关系法的承诺。 办事员宣读了决议的标题。 决议案文如下:。 273. 鉴于《台湾关系法》于1979年4月10日签署成为法律,使美国人民和台湾人民之间继续保持商业、文化和其他关系的基础成为法律,并作为维护和促进持续的双边关系的基础; 而《台湾关系法》则载明美国承诺向台湾提供足够数量的防卫物品和防卫服务,以使台湾保持足够的自卫能力; 鉴于根据《对外关系授权法》第1206条,2003财政年度(公法107-228; 22 c. 2321k 注) ,台湾被视为转让国防物品或国防服务的主要非北约盟国; 1982年,罗纳德 · 里根总统通过发布六项保证进一步阐明了美台关系的重要性和余地; 而《台湾交易法》和《六项保证》是美国对台政策的基石,美国众议院在《海峡两岸关系公约》中重申了这一点。 Res. 鉴于《交易法》和《六项保证》是帮助维护西太平洋地区和平、安全和稳定的重要组成部分,从而促进了美国和台湾的政治、安全和经济利益; 鉴于美国和台湾在过去40年里建立了日益密切的经济和安全关系,其基础是共同致力于民主、人权、法治和自由市场原则,并愿意合作打击全球恐怖主义和应对其他全球挑战,如与环境、公共卫生、能源安全、教育、妇女赋权、数字经济、贫穷和自然灾害有关的挑战; 鉴于美国和台湾的部分合作伙伴关系自2015年《全球合作与培训框架协议》(GCTF)签署以来进一步加强,该协议允许双方共同主办许多关键议题的研讨会,包括2018年12月10个地区政府派出的人道主义援助和救灾研讨会; 鉴于台湾具备专业知识、意愿和能力,能够参与国际努力,以减轻与公共健康、航空安全、犯罪和反恐等问题相关的全球压力,但其参与这些努力受到中华人民共和国强加的条件的限制; 鉴于历届大会都呼吁行政部门制定战略,使台湾切实参与世界卫生组织(世卫组织)、国际民用航空组织(国际民航组织)和国际刑事警察组织(国际刑警组织)等国际组织; 鉴于大会最近于2019年1月22日以观察员身份对台湾参加世界卫生组织世界卫生大会表示支持,并通过了 h。 R. 2018年3月16日,《台湾旅行法》(Pub-lic Law 115-135)成为法律,规定美国政府"应鼓励美国和台湾各级官员互访"; 而美国和台湾已建立了牢固的经济伙伴关系, 美国现在是台湾的第三大贸易伙伴,台湾是美国的第11大贸易伙伴,是美国农产品出口的主要目的地; 而美国与台湾之间强有力的经济关系是刺激美国和台湾人民经济增长和就业的积极因素; 而历届国会都公开重申美国根据《台湾关系法》和《六项保证》对台湾的承诺, 包括最近于2018年12月31日颁布的《2018年亚洲再保证倡议法》(第115-409号公法) ,其中规定: (1)美国的政策是"支持台湾和美国之间密切的经济、政治和安全关系"; (2)"总统应定期向台湾转移国防物品,以应对来自中华人民共和国的现有和可能的威胁,包括支持台湾努力发展不对称的可支配能力,并酌情将其纳入其军事力量,包括机动的、可维持的和具有成本效益的能力。 " (3)"总统应根据《台湾旅行法》鼓励美国高级官员前往台湾。" · 因此,现在可以决议,代表大会ー(1)重申《台湾关系法》和六项保证是并将继续是美国与台湾关系的基石; (2)鼓励美国各级官员前往台湾会见他们的对手,并鼓励台湾高级官员根据《台湾旅行法》进入美国会见美国官员; (3)重申总统应根据包括2018年《亚洲保证倡议法》(第115-409号公法)在内的先前立法,按照台湾的国家安全要求,定期向台湾转让国防物品; (4)呼吁国务卿在国际上积极参与,支持台湾有意义地参与应对卫生、航空安全、犯罪和恐怖主义等跨国威胁和挑战的国际组织; (5)确认台湾在共同应对全球恐怖主义方面的伙伴关系,包括作为打击 ISIS 全球联盟的正式伙伴,以及通过全球合作与培训框架(GCTF)和其他此类倡议应对其他全球性挑战的伙伴关系; (6)强调了通过诸如美国和台湾之间在过去60年中支持了数以千计的美国和台湾学者和受赠方交流的基础上培育的密切民间联系的重要性; (7)确认美国台湾研究所和台北经济文化代表处为支持美国台湾利益所做的重要工作。 2014年9月11日02:39 May 08,2019 jkt 089060PO 000000frm 00007Fmt 0634E: CR FM K07MY7.013 H07MYPT1SSpencer on DSKBBXCHB2PROD with HOUSE

CONGRESSIONAL RECORD—HOUSEH3457 May 7, 2019 ENGELand the entire Foreign Affairs Committee for their enthusiastic sup-port of this measure and their support for the democracy of Taiwan. I yield back the balance of my time. Mr. SIRES. Mr. Speaker, I yield my-self such time as I may consume. I urge my colleagues to support this measure. This is an important bill that demonstrates our historical bipartisan support for Taiwan, and so, as co-chair of the Taiwan Caucus, I strongly pro-mote the immediate passage of H.R. 2002. Mr. Speaker, I yield back the balance of my time. Ms. JOHNSON of Texas. Mr. Speaker, I rise today in support of the Taiwan Assurance Act and to recognize the 40th Anniversary of the Taiwan Relations Act. Taiwan has made great strides over the past forty years becoming a beacon of democracy and individual freedom. The Taiwan Assurance Act reaffirms the United States’ strong commitment to Taiwan, and takes necessary steps to ensure that the friendship between the people of the United States and Taiwan continues to grow. Further-more, this bill recognizes Taiwan’s contribu-tions in various areas such as global health and makes it the policy of the United States to advocate for Taiwan’s inclusion in the United Nations and other international organizations such as the World Health Assembly. It was an honor to travel to Taiwan last month with a few of my colleagues to cele-brate the 40th Anniversary of the Taiwan Re-lations Act and to witness the opening of the new facility for the American Institute in Tai-wan. While our relationship remains unofficial, en-acted legislation such as the Taiwan Travel Act will allow high level officials from both gov-ernments to travel and meet with their coun-terparts, allowing both parties to foster and strengthen the important relationship we share. Mr. Speaker, in these rapidly changing times across the world, it is important and even more necessary for us to recognize and appreciate our allies who carry a strong belief in democracy and human rights. Taiwan is a prime example of that and I commend them for the progress they have made over the past forty years. I look forward to seeing this rela-tionship continue and strengthen over time. The SPEAKER pro tempore. The question is on the motion offered by the gentleman from New Jersey (Mr. SIRES) that the House suspend the rules and pass the bill, H.R. 2002. The question was taken; and (two- thirds being in the affirmative) the rules were suspended and the bill was passed. A motion to reconsider was laid on the table. f REAFFIRMING UNITED STATES COMMITMENT TO TAIWAN AND TO IMPLEMENTATION OF TAI-WAN RELATIONS ACT Mr. SIRES. Mr. Speaker, I move to suspend the rules and agree to the reso-lution (H. Res. 273) reaffirming the United States commitment to Taiwan and to the implementation of the Tai-wan Relations Act. The Clerk read the title of the resolu-tion. The text of the resolution is as fol-lows: H. RES. 273 Whereas the Taiwan Relations Act (TRA) was signed into law on April 10, 1979, codi-fying into law the basis for continued com-mercial, cultural, and other relations be-tween the people of the United States and the people of Taiwan, and serving as the foundation to preserve and promote contin-ued bilateral bonds; Whereas the TRA enshrines the United States commitment to make available to Taiwan such defense articles and defense services in such quantity as may be nec-essary to enable Taiwan to maintain a suffi-cient self-defense capability; Whereas pursuant to section 1206 of the Foreign Relations Authorization Act, Fiscal Year 2003 (Public Law 107–228; 22 U.S.C. 2321k note.), Taiwan is to be treated as though it were designated a major non-NATO ally for transfers of defense articles or defense serv-ices; Whereas in 1982, President Ronald Reagan further clarified the importance and resil-ience of the United States-Taiwan relation-ship with the issuance of the Six Assurances; Whereas the TRA and the Six Assurances are cornerstones of United States policy with respect to Taiwan, as was reaffirmed by the House of Representatives with the adop-tion of H. Con. Res. 88 in 2016; Whereas the TRA and the Six Assurances have been essential components in helping to maintain peace, security, and stability in the Western Pacific, thereby furthering the political, security, and economic interests of the United States and Taiwan; Whereas the United States and Taiwan have forged ever closer economic and secu-rity relations over the last four decades based on their shared commitment to democ-racy, human rights, the rule of law and free market principles, and their willingness to partner in efforts to combat global terrorism and to address other global challenges, such as those related to the environment, public health, energy security, education, women’s empowerment, digital economy, poverty, and natural disasters; Whereas the United States-Taiwan part-nership has been further strengthened since the 2015 memorandum of understanding es-tablishing the Global Cooperation and Train-ing Framework (GCTF), which has allowed the two parties to cohost many workshops on critical topics, including one in December 2018 on humanitarian assistance and disaster relief to which ten regional governments sent participants; Whereas Taiwan has the expertise, willing-ness, and capability to engage in inter-national efforts to mitigate global chal-lenges related to such issues as public health, aviation safety, crime, and ter-rorism, but its participation in such efforts has been constrained by conditions imposed by the People’s Republic of China (PRC); Whereas successive Congresses have called upon the executive branch to develop strate-gies to obtain meaningful participation for Taiwan in international organizations, such as the World Health Organization (WHO), International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), and International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL); Whereas the Congress most recently ex-pressed support for Taiwan’s participation at the World Health Organization’s World Health Assembly as an observer on January 22, 2019, with the adoption of H.R. 353 by the House of Representatives; Whereas communication on bilateral secu-rity, cultural, and commercial interests would be greatly enhanced with the full im-plementation of the Taiwan Travel Act (Pub-lic Law 115–135), which became law on March 16, 2018, and which states that the United States Government ‘‘should encourage visits between officials from the United States and Taiwan at all levels’’; Whereas the United States and Taiwan have built a strong economic partnership, with the United States now Taiwan’s third largest trading partner and with Taiwan the 11th largest trading partner of the United States and a key destination for United States agricultural exports; Whereas strong United States-Taiwan eco-nomic relations have been a positive factor in stimulating economic growth and job cre-ation for the people of both the United States and Taiwan; and Whereas successive Congresses have pub-licly reaffirmed United States commitments to Taiwan under the Taiwan Relations Act and Six Assurances, including most recently on December 31, 2018, with the enactment into law of the Asia Reassurance Initiative Act of 2018 (Public Law 115–409), which stated among other things that— (1) it is United States policy ‘‘to support the close economic, political, and security relationship between Taiwan and the United States’’; (2) ‘‘The President should conduct regular transfers of defense articles to Taiwan that are tailored to meet the existing and likely threats from the People’s Republic of China, including supporting the efforts of Taiwan to develop and integrate asymmetric capabili-ties, as appropriate, including mobile, sur-vivable, and cost-effective capabilities into its military forces.’’; and (3) ‘‘The President should encourage the travel of high-level United States officials to Taiwan, in accordance with the Taiwan Travel Act.’’: Now, therefore, be it Resolved, That the House of Representa-tives— (1) reaffirms that the Taiwan Relations Act, together with the Six Assurances, are and will remain cornerstones of United States relations with Taiwan; (2) encourages United States officials at all levels to travel to meet with their counter-parts in Taiwan, and for high-level Taiwan officials to enter the United States and meet with United States officials, per the Taiwan Travel Act; (3) reiterates that the President should conduct regular transfers of defense articles to Taiwan consistent with Taiwan’s national security requirements in accordance to prior legislation, including the Asia Reassurance Initiative Act of 2018 (Public Law 115–409); (4) calls on the Secretary of State to ac-tively engage internationally in support of Taiwan’s meaningful participation in inter-national organizations engaged in addressing transnational threats and challenges such as those related to health, aviation security, and crime and terrorism; (5) recognizes Taiwan’s partnership in com-bating global terrorism, including as a full partner in the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS, and in addressing other global chal-lenges through the Global Cooperation and Training Framework (GCTF) and other such initiatives; (6) underscores the importance of the close people-to-people ties cultivated through ini-tiatives such as the Fulbright Program, which has supported thousands of scholar and grantee exchanges between the United States and Taiwan over the past 60 years; and (7) acknowledges the important work done by the American Institute in Taiwan and the Taipei Economic and Cultural Representa-tive Office in support of United States-Tai-wan interests.
