Taiwan urged to nurture athletes
Taiwan's sports authorities were urged yesterday to adjust the direction of their athletic nurturing policies for athletes being groomed to compete internationally.
Legislative Yuan Vice Speaker Tseng Yung-chuan (曾永權), who doubles as vice chairman of the Chinese Taipei Olympic Committee, said sports circles should probably consider adjusting their training direction to help Taiwan perform better in world competitions.
Easing restrictions
Easing restrictions on Chinese investment in Taiwan's stock market will be one of the government's policy priorities for the coming year, according to a package of policy guidelines approved by the Cabinet Thursday.
Under the guidelines, the government will gradually allow Chinese investment in the local bourse and will set up a monitoring mechanism to oversee financial exchanges across the Taiwan Strait.
Closer ties
St. Lucia, one of Taiwan's diplomatic allies in the West Indies, is seeking closer medical cooperation to further cement bilateral ties, according to a press release.
The press release quoted Mondesir as saying that St. Lucia should learn from Taiwan, particularly in terms of its national health insurance system, which is world-renowned for its sound design and application.
