Du Zi-jun, Secretary of Industrial Development Bureau, Ministry of Economic Affairs noted that first we should take the EPUB format into circumspect consideration to follow the international standard. The second is we can co-enact the common format for Chinese e-book with Mainland China in next June’s Computex Exhibit and promote Taiwan’s e-book products.
