Cybersecurity policy needs update

In September last year, Vice President William Lai (賴清德) attended the Hacks in Taiwan Conference, a cybersecurity conference held annually in Taiwan. He said: “Taiwan is in a key position on the first island chain and faces a grave threat from China. It suffers 30 million cyberattacks every month.”

Echoing President Tsai Ing-wen’s (蔡英文) belief that “cybersecurity is national security,” Lai advocates a policy for enhancing the cybersecurity industry on par with the West’s.


EU-Taipei ties rise as China falters

While China is losing its luster in Europe, Taiwan’s importance is growing in the eyes of European countries. Against the backdrop of Beijing’s worsening image, European states should work with Taipei to develop a robust and sustainable relationship.

Amid Taiwan’s vaccine shortage, European partners donated COVID-19 vaccines to help Taiwan. Lithuania was the first EU member state to donate vaccines to Taiwan, with 20,000 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine. The Czech Republic followed with a donation of 30,000 doses of the Moderna vaccine last month. Poland donated 400,000 AstraZeneca doses this month and Slovakia has pledged to donate 10,000 doses.


Removal of Chiang statue prioritized

The Transitional Justice Commission yesterday announced its plan for transforming Taipei’s Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall, which would prioritize removing the main hall’s large bronze statue of the former leader.


Judge reviews need transparency

The long-standing problem of Taiwan’s “dinosaur judges” finally saw some light in July last year when amendments to the Judges Act (法官法) allowed the public to directly request that judges’ and prosecutors’ competency be evaluated.

The amended act ordered the Judicial Yuan to establish the Judicial Evaluation Committee for judges, and the Judicial Personnel Review Committee to evaluate their appointments, removals and transfers.


War means instant independence

The people of Afghanistan are bearing the escalating brunt of inhuman Taliban rule after US President Biden’s abandonment of the country. However exasperated many Americans felt about the prolonged US stay in Afghanistan, they do not like what Biden has done and said about it, and his approval ratings have justifiably fallen.

For its part, China mocks Biden personally and the US generally as weak and untrustworthy. Driving its disdain home, it has issued a brazen new challenge, threatening military action against Taiwan if Washington merely allows President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) to participate in a virtual democracy conference planned for December.


Supporting historical TV dramas

The premiere of Taiwanese TV drama Seqalu: Formosa 1867 (斯卡羅) on the Public Television Service has sparked a considerable reaction and discussion, demonstrating that many Taiwanese yearn to learn more about the country’s past. They have used social media to debate, explore and reconstruct Aboriginal history from multiple perspectives and specialized academic fields.

Government departments involved in funding the production of historical films and television series have naturally basked in praise for commissioning the well-received TV series, but officials involved in cultural affairs should ensure that the limited resources available to them are used to provide viewers with a complete and diverse viewing experience.

Student activist Chen Wei-ting (陳為廷) and New Power Party legislative candidate Freddy Lim (林昶佐) joined netizens yesterday in panning comments by People First Party (PFP) Chairman and presidential candidate James Soong (宋楚瑜) on the Martial Law period as inappropriate.

Soong declared his presidential bid on Thursday and his campaign photograph showed Soong covered in mud.
