I would like to give you a brief report on some of our main work and achievements. The Taiwan Chapter held its board of directors meeting on July 16th. President Gusev and Mr. Song-Jeng Huang, who is the director of Science and Technology Division of Taipei Representative Office in Moscow, were invited to talk about the interactions between Taiwan and Russia. A news article about their talks has been posted on the Taiwan Chapter’s website.

Thanks to the hard work of our administrator, all the information on our website is available in Chinese, English and Russian. We welcome members from other chapters to visit the website for any resources they need.

Taiwan has been able to contain the spread of COVID-19, and so far people's lives here have not changed that much. But some travel restrictions are still in place. From this moment on, I think our focus should be on developing effective vaccines and drugs and on bringing them to market. It will require our collective efforts to achieve this goal. Finally, I hope everyone will take good care of themselves and I wish you all the best.
