The Ministry of Economic Affairs stated that, for the purpose of promoting innovation in the biotechnology industry, the Ministry will strengthen innovative research and development activities in the industry, generating niche biomedical products, advancing systematic and intelligent medical devices, and facilitating the health promotion industry. At the same time, by promoting to emerging markets and implementing the New Southbound Policy, high-quality Taiwanese pharmaceuticals, medical devices and health supplement products can be delivered to the global market to leverage the internationalization of Taiwanese industry.
