To develop a stronger biomedical industy — one of the 6key industries in the Executive Yuan’s “five plus two” innovative industries plan — government agencies should take proactive steps to bolster precision healthcare by integrating innovative technologies in various fields, Su said in Taipei after a briefing on the government’s work on biomedical innovations.
