TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — The American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) published a Facebook
post Thursday describing Taiwan as a “fellow super-innovator.”
The message states Taiwan and the U.S. have enjoyed a cooperative partnership in the field of technology for many years, with the city of Hsinchu as the epicenter of their relationship.
The U.S. and Taiwan held their first joint digital economy forum in 2015, which each year since has served as a platform for experts from both sides to share their knowledge, and for launching joint programs and initiatives.
AIT Director Brent Christensen reportedly spent Wednesday discussing the future of the semiconductor industry with experts in Taiwan and spoke to Hsinchu mayor Lin Chih-chien (林智堅) about how to further deepen bilateral cooperation. [FULL STORY]
