在华府能和赵小兰部长同台， 是我毕生的荣幸。 在我数十年的媒体工作中， 能够為赵部长出版发行一本有关她传奇的书， 更是美南新闻有史以来最大之成绩及挑战。
身為一书之发行人， 早在三年多前赵部长访问休斯敦时， 我们已经建议為她不平凡之一生 出版及发行一本為后辈可以追随和学习之榜样。
今天在华府希尔顿饭店举行的国际领袖基金会年会上， 和创会会长董继玲一起主持灶边夜话，𣈱谈赵部长过去现在及未来， 最珍贵的是许多年青朋友向部长请教如何在美国政坛展露头角而成為华裔最有成就的人物 。
赵氏家族能从一个移民家庭， 成為美国移民之楷模， 其中之艰苦和打拼， 从多位作者之笔下描绘出多少令人感动之故事。
"Go Forward Boldly," The New Book About Secretary Elaine Chao
I was so fortunate to sit down with former U.S. Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao in Washington, D.C. and talk about her new book, "Go Forward Boldly," which was published by Southern News Group.
Just yesterday afternoon, the founder of the International Leadership Forum Chiling Tung and I conducted an introduction and interview with former secretary Chao on the stage of the D.C. Hilton Hotel.
Her story really represents the many stories of how the immigrants came to America. And because of their hard work, they created many successful stories in many professional areas of endeavor and became an important part of the fabric of this great nation.
Elaine Chao's success and personal achievements represent a shining model for our next generation. Her family and Asian heritage gave her the strength and true grit to reach the top levels of the U.S. federal government with great success as the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Transportation.
The book we have just published will tell all the stories about her life and her wonderful career.
We are so honored to come to the U.S. capitol and finally set up the International Trade Center branch office in the Washington, D.C. area. We want to be part of the political process.
