President Tsai touts golden decade for Taiwan technology industry
Taipei, May 24 (CNA) President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) said Tuesday at the opening of COMPUTEX Taipei 2022 that the government will continue to work with the private sector to usher in a new "golden decade" for Taiwan's technology industry.
The information and communications technology (ICT) sector will continue to play a major role in the advancement of economic development, and is also key to promoting the digital transformation of other industries, Tsai said in her opening remarks.
She went on to mention the highly resilient and competitive semiconductor ecosystem the country has built over the past four decades, ranging from foundry and integrated circuit (IC) design to packaging and testing.
In the future, cutting-edge technologies such as artificial intelligence and cloud computing will be highly dependent on semiconductors, she said.
As such, the president said Taiwan must continue to leverage its strength in high-end hardware manufacturing so the ICT industry can further expand its applications into smart machinery and smart medical care, with the aim of making Taiwan's economy more internationally competitive.
The government will continue to work with the private sector to promote Taiwan's digital transformation, drive economic development, and jointly build another golden decade for the country's technology industry, Tsai said.
Organized jointly by the Taiwan External Trade Development Council and the Taipei Computer Association, COMPUTEX 2022 resumed physical exhibitions this year at Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center after a hiatus of two years.
The event runs until Friday.
