"Compiled by the Ministry of Science and Technology:
The Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST), originally established as the National Science Council (NSC), Executive Yuan on February 1, 1959, is the government agency dedicated to scientific and technological development. Its three main missions are promoting nationwide S&T development, supporting academic research, and developing science parks."
The rapid progress in science and technology not only impacts the speed and direction of social change but also creates the capacity for economic growth. As we advance into the future, we must use science to meet the requirements for economic growth and social development, and continue to increase Taiwan’s competitiveness in order to become one of the world’s tech titans. To expand the value of science—that is, discovering new knowledge—to include promoting social and economic progress and increasing Taiwan’s competitiveness, a comprehensive strategy for scientific and technological development is needed so as to meet future expectations through policy guidance and resource input. Only by keeping abreast of technological trends can we hold the key to future success. For this reason, the government acts in accordance with the Fundamental Science and Technology Act and regularly presents a statement describing the visions, strategies, and current status of scientific and technological development, focusing particularly on changes in international and domestic affairs as well as socioeconomic requirements, to raise Taiwan’s standards in science and technology, drive economic development through innovation, boost national competitiveness, improve public wellbeing, and build a sustainable environment.
