Taiwan expands recruitment of foreign students


TAIPEI: The Taiwanese government will be expanding a program to offer incentives to foreign students, Premier Mao Chi-kuo announced last Friday, following a Cabinet briefing by the Overseas Community Affairs Council (OCAC). “We are facing a major demographic change and brain drain through the steady export of high-end professionals and import of entry-level workers,” Mao said. According to a media release by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the program aims to increase the number of new students annually to 25,000 by 2025, with the incentives being primarily focused on students from Southeast Asia, Japan, and Korea.
