Ministries of Digital and Foreign Affairs team up with Acer, Ukrainian Catholic University for Taiwan Can Help Free the Future partnership

The Ministries of Digital and Foreign Affairs teamed up with Acer Inc. and Ukrainian Catholic University for the launch of the first Taiwan Can Help Free the Future partnership on Jan. 15 in Lviv.
Centered on Lyceum Grono, a school in the Western Ukrainian city attended by students aged 6 to 16, the launch involved the handover of laptops and tablet PCs produced by Acer, a New Taipei City-headquartered computer multinational, as well as robot components and a generator.
According to Minister of Digital Affairs Audrey Tang, who was represented at the launch by a moda delegate and participated via video address, the partnership represents another strong step forward in Taiwan public-private sector efforts to create digital opportunities for the younger generations while strengthening societal resilience.
Science and technology should build a brighter future for all, and political factors must not stand in the way of borderless cooperation, Tang said. Case in point is the spirit of the Declaration for the Future of the Internet, which is alive and well in the partnership, she added.
Tang and Ukraine’s Minister of Digital Transformation Mykhailo Fedorov were among representatives of over 60 countries to sign the declaration setting out the vision and principles of a safe, progressive and trusted Internet in April 2022.
According to Tang, Taiwan is extending a helping hand to Ukraine and its courageous people at a time of great need. The war is impacting all aspects of life, especially education, she said, adding it is imperative students can continue learning and accessing global digital resources.
Taiwan and Ukraine share the common values of freedom, democracy, respect for human rights and rule of law, Tang said. It is sincerely hoped the partnership will open the door for more bilateral cooperation, she added.
