Ministry of Economic Affairs Promotes Science and Technology Application in Indigenous Towns, Advancing Ren-Ai Township, Nantou County
On October 23rd , 2021, the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Ren-Ai Township Office in Nantou County held the "Initiation Ceremony of the Application Project of Scientific Research Achievements in Indigenous Fields", announcing that they will invest the technical resources of the Industrial Technology Research Institute and the Institute for Information Industry, and introduce the results of scientific and technological projects into the daily lives of indigenous citizens. The projects have the dual core of "AgriFood" and "Travel and Transportation", which will establish demonstration fields in Ren-Ai Township, Nantou County, and cooperate with local businesses to solve the needs of the indigenous towns by various technologies.

In terms of "AgriFood" technologies, the "Precision Drip Irrigation System" is used in conjunction with environmental sensing, smart monitoring and other technologies to increase the yield of crops; as for the "Travel and Transportation" technologies, "Real-time Mass Transportation Information System" and "Smart Transportation Car Dispatching Service system" are built to improve local transportation services and increase the population of the indigenous hometowns.

Due to environmental constraints, insufficient transportation resources, and limited agricultural labor force, the Department of Industrial Technology (DoIT), the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) intends to focus on "sustainability" and "proliferation", using existing scientific and professional achievements and combining them with local resources to reduce the burden on R&D of the domestic businesses and assist in industrial transformation. It is expected that the assistance could boost the economy of indigenous hometowns and bring the youth back home for employment.
