New Southbound Policy: Ministry looking to improve exchanges

NEXT STEP:The Ministry of Education, having met its quantitative goals, is now shifting from output-based to outcome-based goals for every academic program

By Han Cheung  /  Staff reporter

Expos are one of the main avenues — the ministry last month took 32 schools to the Taiwan Higher Education Fair in Manila.

The ministry in June last year launched the first Taiwan-India University President Forum at National Tsing Hua University (國立清華大學), where 11 Indian university deans met with 15 of their Taiwanese counterparts to engage in direct talks on academic and student exchanges, as well as other collaborations. This year’s forum is being held at India’s National Institute of Technology Warangal.

Similar academic exchanges also took place with Malaysia and the Philippines.

In the past few months, the Taiwan External Trade Development Council launched three New Southbound Market Recruitment Matching events in Taipei, Kaohsiung and Taichung, where 105 Taiwanese companies offered 1,300 positions.

Vietnam-based, Taiwanese-run Dai Phat Foods (大發食品) said that there is an urgent need for Vietnamese talent with experience of Taiwan and a wide range of capabilities — including marketing, sales and logistics.

“There are abundant opportunities for overseas students to stay in Taiwan or to work for a Taiwanese company in their home nation,” Bi said.
