President Tsai Ing-wen says that a newly reshuffled Cabinet will speed up necessary reforms.
Tsai was speaking Wednesday during a meeting with members of Junior Chamber International Taiwan. The Cabinet is expected to resign en masse Thursday following the resignation of Premier Lin Chuan on Monday.
She said that since her last meeting with the group last year, there has been economic growth, lowered unemployment, and increased export orders. She said that efforts at judicial reform, pension reform, and building a new long-term care policy have also started to produce results. She also said that plans for industrial innovation, revisions to laws, and an infrastructure program are all in place.
Tsai said that the first year of her presidency was about setting down foundations, and that this year is about building. She said she believes the new Cabinet will bring reforms closer on track.
