President Ma Ying-jeou said Nov. 11 the government is leaving no stone unturned in its
efforts to enhance Taiwan’s competitiveness amid the changing dynamics of the global economy.
“The government is continuing to upgrade the country’s key industries through forward-thinking policies such as the Productivity 4.0 project, which was released earlier this year and targets eight specific industries,” the president said.
“Over the next nine years, this NT$36 billion [US$1.1 billion] initiative will see the per capita output of the local agriculture, manufacturing and services sectors top NT$2.5 million, NT$10 million and NT$2.3 million, respectively, or increases of 70 percent, 60 percent and 40 percent from last year.”
The president made the remarks while receiving Christian Ketels, a faculty member of Harvard Business School’s Institute for Strategy and Competitiveness, at the Presidential Office. [FULL STORY]
