Taipei, Aug. 7 (CNA) Economic Affairs Minister John Deng (鄧振中) said Friday at the unveiling of a talent recruitment center that Taiwan will provide one-stop service to help talent recruited from abroad and their families to adapt to life in Taiwan.

The talent recruitment center was formally added Friday to the InvesTaiwan Service Center that was launched on Aug. 8, 2010, and Deng said it represented an important move forward in Taiwan's efforts to recruit top talent.

Noting the importance of talent in a competitive world, Deng said that while Taiwan continues to nurture its own talent, it must also bring in top people from around the world, and the new function was created for that reason.

Deng said professionals coming to work in Taiwan are likely to have problems getting accustomed to daily life here, and he hoped to use the center as a one-stop solution to help them solve the difficulties encountered in their daily lives and at work.

The new talent recruitment center will be connected with the overseas missions of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) HiRecruit website.

It will also hook up with 65 major enterprises in the country to understand their needs and open a channel through which they can find new talent.
