President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) said Saturday that her administration will continue its efforts to make improvements in Taiwan and help the country “soar on wings” like an eagle.
Faith in the people and democracy and trust in the government will strengthen the country to face its challenges, Tsai said at the annual National Prayer Breakfast in Taiwan, which she was attending for the first time in her capacity as president.
“Soaring on wings,” the theme of the prayer meeting, is also a goal of the Taiwanese people and one of the top priorities of the government, she said.
Since taking office in May, Tsai said, her administration has been undertaking reforms in areas ranging from industrial innovation and the work environment to long-term care, in an effort to improve the lives of the Taiwanese people.
Reforms are needed for Taiwan to improve and require the efforts of everyone in the country, she said.
The president said she has faith in democracy and the people of Taiwan and that her administration remains committed to restoring and winning the people’s trust.
The government will stand with the people on the road to reform, so that they will run and not be weary, and walk and not faint on the road to upgrading Taiwan, and will help the country “soar on wings like an eagle,” she said.
Several members of the clergy who attended the meeting also prayed for the country and for the president.
