During his opening remarks, NCC Chairperson Yaw-Shyang Chen stated that in order to plan digital development resources in Taiwan as a whole and assist various industries to implement the digital transformation, the Executive Yuan passed the Ministry Of Digital Development Organization Bill on March 25, 2021, meaning the nation would soon undergo a new wave of government organizational restructuring. As such, NCC would be taking on new dimensions and responsibilities. In that light, the seminar would discuss the required organizational transformation and digital governance of communications supervision, as well as other related issues, so a developmental blueprint of future digital governance can be outlined jointly with relevant parties.
