As the Chairman of the World Mahjong Organization and the Honorary Chairman of China Majiang Championship, I was very happy for Taipei as the first stop of 2007 World Series of Mahjong Asia Tour.
Mahjong Tournaments that prompt friendly, healthy, and scientific Mahjong culture exchange are gaining great momentum in China and world in recent years. It is a very happy and pleased moment for me to see more and more friends doing their best advocates Mahjong culture around the world, which is the treasure of traditional Chinese culture. I believe that as long as we consistently continue to promote Mahjong culture around the world, it will be further developed. Mahjong will finally join the big family of Olympic Games.
I wish the tournament have a complete success! I wish all the players will playing at their best, achieving excellent results. I hope I will meet you when Sichuan held the 2007 World Mahjong Championship this year.
