Since I founded the Global Federation of Chinese Business Women (GFCBW) in 1994, it has gone through for 27 years. GFCBW are standing with "Envisioning the world, embracing the trend, establishing networks, and developing economic and trade." Furthermore, GFCBW concentrated on enhancing the lofty status of Chinese businesswomen in the world, advocating and supporting Chinese culture and arts, promoting international exchanges, and other missions to promote conference affairs. Through the previous Chairwomen and executive team leading inherited the guidance, followed by the mission and task of GFCBW organization, combining with the global overseas Chinese women entrepreneurs all over the world to expanding and set up for more chapters. Up to date, there are 74 chapters spanning across three oceans and six continentals around the world.
Overseas Chinese are the initiators and defenders of the Republic of China (R.O.C). They are also the driving force and diplomatic pioneers to assist the country to move forward. The GFCBW sisters live in various overseas residences and use their network to help expand the diplomatic spaces and enhance the visibility of the Republic of China. Overseas Chinese compatriots have a very important task, which is to assist in marketing Taiwan's advantage soft power, connect global Chinese, grow the country, and the direction of GFCBW platform's efforts. It is expected that GFCBW organization will become the most important network and communication platform for overseas Chinese businesswomen, be the new women's power that national diplomacy relies on.
Congratulations to the 10th Chairwoman Alice Liu for leading the excellent executive team. She demonstrated extraordinary execution ability and completed many milestones of GFCBW in just two years. This is not only gave GFCBW a warm home, but also allowed GFCBW sisters to learn in information without borders, grew up on line with the zero time difference "CEO Academy of GFCBW", handed in a brilliant transcript, and resigned honorably.

She served as the 5 th , 6 th , 7 th and 10th vice president of GFCBW, the 9th Board Chairwoman, the Vice President of WTCC (World Taiwanese Chambers of Commerce), and the President of ATCC (African Taiwanese Chambers of Commerce). She is the president of Top International Investment Group. In a foreign country, she started from the owner of a garment factory, a city councilor of Johannesburg, the first Chinese congresswoman in South Africa, and the chief executive officer of the African Amitofo Caring Centre Association. Sherry Chen, with the full support of her husband Vincent Lin, has taken a foreign country as her hometown, cultivated in South Africa, served Taiwanese businessmen, sponsored education in Africa, and was highly respected by the local government and society. She established a model for Taiwanese businessmen in Africa, assist government in developing national diplomacy, promotion of overseas Chinese affairs, and improving visibility of the Republic of China in the world.
