Joseph Shih, representative of ROC(Taiwan) Mission in Korea took host of a gala reception to celebrate  the Double Tenth Day-the national day  which commemorates the start of the Wuchang Uprising of October 10, 1911.
More than 500 guests from all segments of Korean government, business and sociopoltical communities including  Cho Kyoung-Tae, President of the Korea-Taiwan Parliamentarian Friendship Association and members of  foreign diplomatic missions accredited to Korea attended the reception.
On January 1, 1912, the Qing Dynasty in China collapsed and the Republic of China was established, all thanks to the Wuchang Uprising.

   
 

After the end of World War II and end of the Chinese Civil War in 1949, the Republic of China government gained control of Taiwan but ultimately lost control of mainland China. The seat of the Republic of China government relocated to Taipei, Taiwan, while the Chinese Communist
Party founded the People’s Republic of China in mainland China.
In his welcoming speech, Rep.Joseph Shih noted that aiwan and Korea, both democracies in East Asia, have enjoyed a close interaction throughout history.

   
 

"I would like to welcome all of you to the 108th National Day Reception of the Republic of China (R.O.C.). My wife and I are glad and honored to celebrate this special occasion with you," he said pointing out that this year marks the centennial anniversary of the Korean Provisional Government,  he said in his welcoming address..
"One hundred years ago, the R.O.C government helped the R.O.K. establish the provisional government and supported the  independence of the R.O.K. After the Second World War, Taiwan and Korea continued to support each other and successfully democratized the societies and brought about economic development, becoming the regional role models for democracy and economic success," he  went on..

   
 

He then expressed  his  gratitude especially to his  overseas compatriots and friends in Korea for  the  promotion of the Taiwan-Korean relations.
"I hope we can continue to count on your staunch support to deepen the mutually-beneficial ties built on the two  countries’ historical friendship and ongoing exchange," he said.
Taiwan boasts numerous economic achievements, and its democracy has been maturing. Taiwan is ranked 16 in the 2019 IMD World Competitiveness Yearbook.
In addition, according to the 2019 Index of Economic Freedom published by the Heritage Foundation and the Wall Street Journal, Taiwan breaks into top 10 in the list of 180 economies.
The international society also recognizes that Taiwan values freedom, democracy and human rights. After considering an NGO based in the U.S., rated Taiwan, with 93 points in score, as one of the freest countries in the world. the international society.

   
 

Although Taiwan’s international participation constantly faces foreign interference, it continuously strives for participation in the World Health Assembly (WHA) and the Assembly of the International Civil Aviation Organization with  70 million passengers with aviation services of more than 300 routes that connect more than 140 cities.
The international society has also recognized Taiwan’s efforts in implementing anti-money laundering measures and combatting international crimes.
While actively participating in multilateral mechanisms, Taiwan is also ready to contribute to regional peace and prosperity. Since adopting the New Southbound Policy, Taiwan has been deepening ties with the ASEAN and South Asian  countries by building trust and bringing about mutually-beneficial cooperation based on the values of freedom and democracy, making Taiwan a valuable partner of the Free and Open Indo-Pacific strategy. The Indo-Pacific Strategy Report, published by the U.S. Department of Defense this June, mentions Taiwan as a reliable, capable and natural partner of the U.S.

   
 

Taiwan will continue to work with like-minded partners to further peace and prosperity in the Asia-Pacific region and defend the values of freedom, democracy, and human rights.
"Lastly, I would like to thank you again for attending the R.O.C.’s 108th National Day reception and wish you all a great night. Thank you," he concluded.

Over the past decades after the independence of the R.O.K., Taiwan and Korea enjoy close and multifaceted bilateral relations. In 2018, the two-way visitor arrivals exceeded 2.1 million, making Taiwan and Korea each other’s third-largest source of visitors. The bilateral trade volume reached 35.53 billion USD; Korea is Taiwan’s 5th while Taiwan is Korea’s 6th largest trading partner. The two countries continue to deepen cooperation and multi-sectorial exchange, so as to usher in a future with even greater prosperity in the next hundred years.

Ministers, overseas Chinese returning to Taiwan, foreign diplomats, and hundreds of thousands of people from around the country attend the Celebration Ceremony held in front of the Presidential Office Building.
The armed forces displays its military might to the nation in full glory during the ceremony military review.
The climax of the day is the Presidential Address to the nation. The main event of the activities on Double Tenth is the parade. This parade includes representatives of different professions. There are performances from the local entertainment industry as well. The National Day Fireworks Display takes place in the evening, this is the most anticipated event by people. For several hours the fireworks display turns the night sky into a dazzling kaleidoscope of vibrant colors.
