Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen named in Time magazine's 2020 list of 100 influential people

President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) have been included in Time magazine's 2020 list of the 100 most influential people in the world.

"While Taiwan stands a mere 100 miles from mainland China, under President Tsai's leadership, it is neither adrift nor drawn in," U.S. Republican Senator Ted Cruz wrote praising the president.

"Freedom is its North Star, which has been clear in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Taiwan has proved that the virus can be controlled-without emulating China's drastic policies,"he wrote.

This is the second time Tsai has been named by the magazine as one of the world's 100 influential people. The last time Tsai made the list was in 2016.

President Tsai's inclusion in the 100 most influential people list represents the achievement of the whole country and not her alone, presidential spokesman Xavier Chang said.

The president thanked everyone in Taiwan for their joint efforts in combating the COVID-19 pandemic.
