Brussels (CNA) – Taiwan’s cooperation with the European Union (EU) entered a new chapter earlier this week when the first ever Taiwan-EU Dialogue on Digital Economy (DDE) was held in Brussels, the chief of the National Development Council (NDC) has said.

The two-day meeting that began on June 4 was considered a breakthrough in Taiwan-EU relations because the two sides instituted a high-level process for dialogue, said NDC chief Chen Mei-ling (陳美伶), who co-chaired the meeting.

With the digital economy vital to the future of the high-tech and other industries, Taiwan and the EU held in-depth discussions on industrial digitization, AI development strategy, online platforms and information security, Chen told CNA in an interview Thursday (local time).

The EU is pushing a Digital Single Market strategy that aims to integrate the domestic markets of its members, while Taiwan’s government is promoting its DIGI+ program focused on transforming Taiwan into a smart country, Chen said.    [FULL  STORY]
