Google Has Long-Term Plans for a Strong Taiwan

google helps taiwan grow digitally

Taiwan’s response to the pandemic has been great but there are several ways Google intends to support the country’s longer-term recovery and growth. To start out, Google had hosted a Taiwan event recently to help over 10,000 people learn digital marketing skills and start their journey towards acquiring a certification. This could help the citizens of the country tap into opportunities with over 40 companies. The event by Google was hosted in partnership with 104 Job Bank.

Google is also supporting programs of Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) and the Taiwan Institute of Economic Research to help the Taiwanese exporters make the most of the opportunities in the world market. Google is also working with the country’s Ministry of Transportation and Communications to offer courses on digital tools to tourism businesses who have been hit hard by the pandemic.

Google wrote on its blog: “Taiwan has great potential in fields like artificial intelligence and machine learning, with a talented generation of Taiwanese developers beginning to come through.” To augment the potential of Taiwan in these areas, Google has partnered with organizations and launched a joint initiative with the country’s Ministry of Science and Technology and the Artificial Intelligence Research Center. The company also has other programs which provide university scholarships.
