Long will future generations of the Taiwanese people remember, what history will forever enshrine —- the legacy President Lee Teng-hui leaves.     

For it was he who spearheaded Taiwan’s shift to democratic order and united the people in cherishing the rule of law.                                         

As Filipinos, we fondly recall how President Lee actively promoted strong bilateral ties and people-to-people relations with our country, at the time also awakened from a long night of authoritarianism.                 

Ave atque vale, President Lee Teng-hui!
