Premier Chang San-cheng met with Premier-designate Lin Chuan April 8 in
Taipei City, sharing commitment to cooperating on administrative affairs, budget and personnel in the lead up to the May 20 handover of power.
“We have confidence in the incoming Cabinet’s ability to tackle the challenges Taiwan is facing,” Chang said before the hourlong meeting, expressing his respect and good wishes to his successor. “I expect Lin and his team to deliver outstanding performance in the years ahead.”
In terms of administrative affairs, Lin aims to initiate in-depth exchanges so the new government of President-elect Tsai Ing-wen of the Democratic Progressive Party can take over seamlessly.
According to Cabinet Spokesman Sun Lih-chyun, efforts in this regard have already begun, with the Executive Yuan delivering briefings on each ministry’s affairs to the government transition task force. [FULL STORY]
