TAIWAN’S Bureau of Foreign Trade, Ministry of Economic Affairs (BoFT MoEA) has planned to develop global artificial intelligence (AI) industrial trends by utilising its prominent information technologies and semiconductor industries.
BoFT MoEA together with Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) and Information Service Industry Association (CISA) has encouraged Taiwan’s information and technology companies to keep on research, development and innovation amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Covid-19 has sped up the digital transformation process and now more digital solutions are being widely used. By speeding up digital transformation, corporations can then grow and make profits,” CISA chairman Brian Chen said at Taiwan Excellence 2021 webinar.
He said that CISA was honoured to work with TAITRA to present the software industry in Taiwan.
