Taiwan Nurturing Digital and Bilingual Talent

The National Development Council (NDC) recently briefed Premier Chen Chien-jen on the programme’s Key Talent Cultivation and Recruitment status. The premier instructed the NDC to establish Talent Taiwan, a national one-stop service dedicated to removing barriers from the work and living environments of foreign professionals in Taiwan, encouraging them to stay for a longer period and contribute more significantly to the country. This will help the industry remain competitive.

Premier Chen urged the NDC to work with relevant ministries and agencies to actively promote three main strategies: cultivating domestic digital talent, recruiting key international talent, and deepening bilingual capability and international perspective to carry out President Tsai Ing-wen’s policy commitment to improve the cultivation and recruitment of digital and bilingual talent.

Organisations and industries must improve the development and hiring of digital and bilingual talent if they want to remain competitive, meet market demands, and be ready for the future. It fosters international cooperation, encourages innovation, embraces technological improvements, improves customer experience, stimulates economic growth, and secures future readiness.

According to the premier, the ministries and agencies’ combined efforts have already produced noticeable outcomes, and they should continue stepping up their promotion of the initiative to improve Taiwan’s talent pool both qualitatively and quantitatively.

The premier went on to say that developing bilingual and digital talent will help Taiwan’s industries modernise and become more competitive in the international market. Taiwan urgently needs high-calibre individuals with a global perspective, abilities in digital technology, and knowledge of international communication to meet the challenges of a quickly changing post-COVID-19 global economy to maintain vigorous economic growth.

Premier Chen went on to say that to better entice overseas experts, the government has actively supported a variety of industrial policies and associated talent recruiting initiatives, loosened laws and regulations, and improved Taiwan’s quality of life. The number of foreign professionals living in Taiwan increased by 8,883 in 2022, marking the largest yearly growth in ten years.

Since the Act for the Recruitment and Employment of Foreign Professionals went into effect in February 2018, a total of 6,571 Employment Gold Cards have been given to foreign professionals as of the end of 2022. This has made it easier to hire top talent from Silicon Valley startups and other industries around the world.

On the other hand, Premier Chen was also informed of version 1.5 of the government’s next-generation anti-fraud policy guidelines by the National Communications Commission, Financial Supervisory Commission, Ministry of Justice, and Ministry of the Interior.

The premier stated that new guidelines, which have been upgraded from version 1.0, will proactively address the issue by recognising, preventing, intercepting, and penalising fraud. The prime minister urged relevant ministries and agencies to expedite the scheduled implementation of freshly updated strategies and initiatives.

In terms of detecting fraud, the premier stated that all efforts will be directed at education initiatives to improve public knowledge and alertness. To avoid fraud, the government is collaborating with the business sector to block scams, such as by preventing overseas scammers from spoofing caller IDs or by alerting customers when they get calls from international phone numbers.

Premier Chen emphasised that the government has demonstrated its commitment to combating fraud by recently approving draught amendments to the Criminal Code and four other fraud-related legal statutes: the Human Trafficking Prevention Act, the Personal Data Protection Act, the Money Laundering Control Act, and the Securities Investment Trust and Consulting Act.
