The FTC is an independent government agency under the Cabinet. It is responsible for setting trade policy, laws and regulations, and of monitoring unfair trade practices in Taiwan.

Huang is a professor and the head of the economics program of National Taipei University. She said at the transition ceremony on Wednesday that she is appreciative of the trust bestowed on her by the members of the commission and she will work hard with her team to regulate the marketplace.

Huang laid out her goals for the near future. They include enhancing cross-departmental collaboration, more in-depth research on necessary policies for the new economy, stricter control over multilevel marketing, more collaboration with agencies from abroad, and lastly, a push for an amendment which will allow the FTC to seize key evidence in potential trade breaches.    [FULL  STORY]
