The Cabinet led by Premier Lin Chuan (林全) had its first weekly meeting yesterday, with Lin
saying that there will be no “adjustment period” for the government, which is expected to push for various reforms.
The Cabinet meeting was the first since President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) was sworn in with the new administration on Friday last week, when Lin said he hopes that the Cabinet will be a disciplined team that would show its esprit de corps with professionalism and resolve.
Lin said that he hopes the Cabinet could make major changes in a short period of time in a bid to re-establish the public’s trust in the government, adding that he has three demands and three expectations.
“First, the making of the government’s public policies must be a process that allows sufficient communication with the public; every policy’s starting point should be the public’s needs, expectations and dignity,” Lin said. [FULL STORY]
