For example, it has actively implemented cross-disciplinary and international cultivation projects for digital talent, creating a talent pool for the digital transformation of industries. The ministry has been actively reviewing and adapting to regulations for emerging and key industries for environment readiness. In terms of field applications, the ministry has established industry application field experimentation sites for emerging technologies, such as 5G, AI, and sports, facilitating the commercialization and overseas output of digital services. As for empowerment, the ministry has organized various forums, IT Month Expo, and CYBERSEC to increase the number of successful cases.
Minister Audrey Tang said that the most important goal of the Ministry of Digital Affairs is to drive the digital transformation of industries and strengthen the digital resilience of all citizens. The abbreviation of the Ministry of Digital Affairs (MODA) is pronounced the same as motor in Taiwanese (mòda). Similarly, the ministry will play the role of a motor, driving the public and private sectors toward the digital tools that will help them improve their resilience, service quality, and efficiency.
