TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — The government is considering a number of incentives aimed
at attracting foreign talent such as new visas, residence, health insurance, and tax breaks said Taiwan’s Cabinet spokesman Hsu Kuo-yung (徐國勇), CNA reported.
Hsu announced the proposed bill after Premier Lin Chuan (林全) met with legislators from the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) to discuss the proposed “Foreign Talent Recruitment and Employment Law.”
The draft bill would relax restrictions on work permits and the length of time foreign professionals from countries other than mainland China can stay in Taiwan.
