President Tsai Ing-wen said in her national day address on Monday that implementing reforms will make Taiwan great.

Tsai referred to her inauguration speech on May 20, in which she said: “to change young people’s predicament is to change a country’s predicament.” She said that resolving such a predicament has been the core focus of every reform that her administration has initiated in recent months.

Tsai said that her administration is trying to solve problems with the pension system, which is in danger of going bankrupt. She said, “after pension reform, young people will bear a relatively lighter burden, and they will not have to fear that they are paying into the system for nothing.” Tsai said the government is looking to guarantee a life of dignity for every retired citizen.

The president also spoke about how her government is working to revitalize the economy. She talked about the proposed “5+2 innovative industries” driven by innovation, research and development. Tsai spoke about how the plans had been launched with the clear goal of providing job opportunities for young people, and raising their salaries.     [FULL  STORY]
