TAIPEI, Taiwan — In her first National Day address as head of state, Tsai Ing-wen will vow to lead
Taiwan “steadily forward” to “be great due to reforms,” the Presidential Office spokesman said Sunday.
The president’s speech will be delivered in three parts: major policies and plans for the nation, a statement on Taiwan’s participation in international community, and a reiteration of her stance and goodwill toward Beijing, Presidential Office spokesman Alex Huang said.
In the first section of her address, the president will discuss policies aimed at relieving stress for the young generation, such as measures on social housing, pension reform, child care and elderly care.
She will also highlight business policies designed to create jobs (the “5+2 industry policy”) and to build a healthier democracy (namely her transitional justice policies).
According to Huang, the president will stress that this is “the first time we will sit down to think about what we should do for the next generation of people in Taiwan — what kind of nation we are going to leave them.” [FULL STORY]
