Taiwan should use the opportunity provided by U.S. President Donald Trump’s controversial executive order on immigration to attract foreign talents to Taiwan, opposition Kuomintang (KMT) legislator and TEDxTaipei founder Jason Hsu (許毓仁) said recently.

Hsu said that Trump’s ban of immigrants from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen would considerably impact the technology industry of the Silicon Valley in the U.S.

The next regulation to be implemented by the Trump administration would likely be the toughening of H-1B specialty occupation visa that the U.S. issued to experts from other countries, Hsu said, which could discourage even more foreign talents from seeking opportunities in America.

Taiwan should utilize the opportunity provided by Trump to invite such professionals to work in the country, so that Taiwan could fulfill the nation’s ambition of becoming the Silicon Valley of Asia, Hsu said.    [FULL  STORY]
