Taipei, June 2 (CNA) President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) on Saturday presented awards to the five finalists at this year’s social innovation hackathon, thanking them for sharing their ideas and solutions to societal problems in Taiwan.

Speaking at an awards ceremony for the Presidential Hackathon in Taipei, Tsai said the event represents a new chapter for open government in that it seeks to facilitate exchanges between members of the government, industry, and civil groups through the use of open-source data.

Changes are not only driven by the government, but also members of civil groups, she said, calling on everyone to work together to make Taiwan a better place to live.
