     Wenzao recently held an international conference entitled "Global Coopetition Strategy: Interdisciplinary" which looked at how interdisciplinary coopetition is viewed from political, economic, cultural, managerial, and translation perspectives. The conference aimed to look at these areas using a dynamic cross-analysis approach to get a deep understanding of the interaction between national and corporate coopetition strategies.
 
     During his speech, Vice President for Academic Affairs at Wenzao Jian-Shiung Shie extended his utmost thanks to the attendees who had come from as far away as the U.S., Canada, Germany, Indonesia, France, Poland, Mongolia, and China, welcoming all of the guests by delivering a famous Confucian quote about the pleasures that are derived when friends visit from afar.
 
     The conference was jointly organized by the Department of International Affairs along with the Department of Translation and Interpreting and Graduate Institute of Multilingual Translation and Interpreting at Wenzao. The event was also fortunate enough to receive support from the Ministry of Education as part of its development plan to reform education in the humanities and social sciences, and enjoyed a packed agenda covering a variety of disciplines which explored the development of interdisciplinary coopetition. The morning began with two interdisciplinary lectures: the first delivered by the Republic of China"s ambassador to the Republic of Kiribati Mr. Abraham Chu, who discussed security coopetition trends in the Asia-Pacific region as part of international diplomacy, followed by Assistant Professor Peng Kuei-Chuan from the Department of Foreign Languages and Literature at Tunghai University, who discussed the development of coopetition as it is carried out at international conventions from the perspective of translators. These two lectures exemplified the characteristics and professional development of the Departments of International Affairs and Translation and Interpreting, while at the same time exploring interdisciplinary coopetition to keep in line with the focus of the conference.
 
     In the afternoon, Ambassador Chu hosted a forum with a panel featuring Christian Kröning (German Institute Taipei); Mohammad Faizal, Director of Investment, Indonesian Economic and Trade Office; John Slover, Public Affairs Officer of AIT"s Kaohsiung Branch; and Ching Chang, Research Fellow, Society for Strategic Studies, Republic of China. The discussions looked at political, economic, cultural, and strategic perspectives to discuss the role of coopetition in individual countries and regions, with the event receiving an enthusiastic response from audience members who raised questions and contributed toward the event.
 
     A number of papers were also presented at the event, with a total of 14 theses from professors and students being presented over four sessions. The diverse fields which these papers covered included an investigation into coopetition within politics, business management, the political economy, higher education, government, logical reasoning, environmental protection, foreign labor, and regional economic integration.
 
     The conference also invited experts and scholars from local Taiwanese universities including Wenzao, National Cheng Kung University, National Sun Yat-sen University, the R.O.C. Naval Academy, Cheng Shiu University, and Tunghai University. These contributors both attended and delivered lectures on specialist topics, and also presided over and gave feedback during the paper presentation sessions. Among these contributions, Superintendent of the R.O.C. Naval Academy RADM Yuan Chih-Chung both hosted the paper presentation sessions and provided feedback on the papers presented which were related to higher education. There were also dozens of students and teachers in attendance from the naval academy who provided further discourse, along with numerous teachers and students from the R.O.C. Air Force Academy.
 
     In order to exhibit the standard which it is hoped Wenzao students in the Departments of International Affairs and Translation and Interpreting can achieve, the conference organizers specially arranged for postgraduate and undergraduate students from the Department of International Affairs who are undertaking their studies completely in English to provide reception services. This therefore enabled the students to show their abilities at holding an international conference. Postgraduate students from the Graduate Institute of Multilingual Translation and Interpreting also got in on the act by providing simultaneous interpreting from English into Chinese, thus exhibiting the results of the training which students at the institute receive.
