Taiwan is set to become a hub of Internet-based business activity under a raft
of e-commerce promotion measures proposed Jan. 7 by the ROC Ministry of Economic Affairs.
The undertaking, which includes industry and cross-disciplinary talent cultivation strategies, targets eight sectors for strategic promotion. These are agricultural e-commerce, digital learning and publishing, Internet banking, as well as online gaming, tourism, retailing, and video and new media.
Following a Cabinet presentation of the measures, Premier Mao Chi-kuo said they will be supported by regulatory revisions enabling enhanced coordination of interministerial efforts and resources.
“All relevant agencies have been directed to focus on the e-commercialization of Taiwan’s industry sector, infrastructure building and internationalization of the local online business,” he said. [FULL STORY]
