"Y.S. Suen’s influence on Taiwan was never greater than that year when his strategy and support for high-tech industries began.  From lodging the Industrial Technology Research Institute, ITRI, to shifting to integrated circuits, to drawing up a technology development plan, to establishing the Hsinchu Science Park, he pushed Taiwan step by step to become a world-class technology leader.  Y.S. Suen’s most valuable gift to future generations.  Today, we take it for granted.  But at the time, it was an unclear destination, and the process was filled with the wrangling of countless debate."
