TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Taiwan is currently facing a serious problem of brain drain and especially in the tech industry, the National Development Council (NDC) said Thursday.

Around 500,000 to one million tech workers have gone to China to work, the NDC said, alongside other industries such as business management and technical personnel.

A poll conducted by 1111 Job Bank also showed that 25 percent of Taiwanese citizens working abroad have no intention of returning home, while 80 percent of Taiwanese have either had the experience of working overseas or have the intention to do so.

While Taiwan government has long been aware of the problem, policies and procedures in place to reverse the situation have been widely considered to be insufficient.    [FULL  STORY]
