Taiwan stepping up IT, AI, IoT talent training

July 01, 2019 / Bryan Chuang

The shortages of manpower in Taiwan's IT industry have worsened, fueled by the government's push for its "5+2" industrial innovation plan and its efforts to persuade Taiwanese companies to move back from China.The "5+2" plan covers seven industries and projects: intelligent machinery, Asia Silicon Valley (focused on IoT), green energy, biomedicine, national defense and aerospace, new agriculture and the circular economy.The program may stimulate innovation, boost the competitiveness of industry and increase corporate profitability, but they all need to be supported by high-caliber engineers and technicians.Additionally, new investments committed by returning local companies from China are focusing mostly on IT products, thus adding more pressure on the need of skilled technicians and workers in the industry.
