He won great alauses for his dedication to public services， and his memorable contribution to San Francisco shall forever be etched into history of the city. He was not only the pride of the people of San Francisco， but also the pride of the whole Chinese community worldwide. His achievements will continue to be appreciated by the American people， and admired by the Chinese communities around the world.
Mr Lee was the longest-serving mayor of San Francisco in its history of 167 years. During his term of office， Mr Lee worked hard on tax reductions and reliefs， and encouraged technology companies to settle here. He made various efforts in promoting the economic 唐山癫痫病小发作治疗development of the city， and contributed tremendously to the healthy growth of the larger ecological sphere of the Silicon Valley in San Fransisco， and helped the growth of such star companies as Twitter， Uber and Airbnb.
With his Chinese American background， Mr Lee was always an enthusiastic promoter of corporate and cultural exchanges between the U.S. and China， with many fruitful accomplishments.
For the Moutai people， Mr Lee shall forever be our memorable friend. With his support， we have successfully conducted two brand-promotion events in San Francisco. Mr. Lee designated November 12 of each year as the Moutai Day in San Francisco， which has not only been a valuable gift to Moutai people， but also a legend in U.S.-China economic exchanges and cooperation for mutual bene焦作市癫痫病医院预约挂号fit.

Mr Lee’s unexpected and sudden departure breaks our hearts. The Moutai people have lost one highly reputable and respected old friend. But we shall always bear in mind Mr Lee’s contribution to the goodwill and friendship between the two countries， and his encouragement and support to Moutai’s development.
