Mr. SIMPSON. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to commend Mr. Anthony Chung-
Yi Ho. Mr. Ho has served with distinction as Deputy Director of the
Congressional Liaison Division of the Taiwan Economic and Cultural
Representative Office. His leadership and expertise have been
invaluable in working with me and my staff and many other congressional
offices on Capitol Hill. I want to congratulate him for moving back to
his home country of Taiwan, and thank him for his many years of
Mr. Ho has worked closely with my staff for many years on many matters related to U.S.-Taiwan relations. Thanks in large part to his efforts, my staff and I have engaged many times on matters important to Taiwanese-American interests and our shared values of democracy, freedom and human rights.
In addition, over the years the State of Idaho has maintained a fruitful relationship with the Taiwan Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Under Mr. Ho's guidance, our office has cultivated a valuable relationship with the Taiwan Foreign Ministry, which has benefited both Idaho and Taiwan greatly.
Taiwan is one of Idaho's top trading partners, and many sectors of the Idaho economy benefit from the strong ties between the U.S. and Taiwan. Mr. Ho has fully dedicated himself to strengthening this relationship, and my constituents and I are very grateful for his efforts in this regard.
I commend Anthony Ho for his dedication to the enduring friendship and respect between the U.S. and Taiwan. It has been an honor and a pleasure to work with him, and we will greatly miss him when he leaves Washington, D.C. I join many of my colleagues and their staffs in recognizing the devotion of Mr. Anthony Chung-Yi Ho and for his exceptional service and immense contributions to strengthening relations between Taiwan and the United States.
