Draft bill to set up bilingual development centre
The cabinet approved a draft bill on Thursday to establish a national development centre for Taiwan's 2030 bilingual goals.
Representative of the National Development Council, Connie Chang, said at a press conference that the council would adopt "teaching, testing, training and employing" as the four core principles to further bilingual advancement initiatives.
She added that the Bilingual Nation Development Center would be established to further bilingual policies legally by working with government agencies, private companies and institutions.
The government hopes to make Taiwan into a bilingual Chinese and English-speaking nation.
Cabinet spokesman Lo Ping-cheng said "The centre will optimistically consolidate all available resources between government bodies, as well as invite civilian talents to collectively cultivate bilingual professionals."
