A group of young people from the Boston Taiwan Life Technology Association (BTBA) met with him. He was able to do his part for Taiwan's biotechnology. Therefore, Minister Chen started many projects in the following year and began to link foreign biotech talents with Taiwan biotechnology talents, hoping to form a stronger team. In addition, it is hoped that the talent exchange platform will integrate resources and talent teams for industry and academic clinical research. Chen also hope that we can make good use of the resources and talents of the National Biotechnology Park to help Taiwan's biotechnology find a better way out. Finally, we encourage scholars, experts and students to work together for the development of Taiwan's biomedical science.
