“The threshold was not set to exclude certain people. Rather, it means that the 14 percent of people who are well-off are offering help to the other 86 percent,” Chen said.

Lawmakers furthermore agreed that the system under which military training instructors are stationed in senior-high schools and vocational schools will be phased out within eight years.
