TAIPEI (Taiwan News) - The Straits Exchange Foundation (SEF) will convene a board of directors meeting tomorrow to nominate new board directors. A report suggested that the list of new board members would include government officials as well as businesspeople. According to the report, the list include Minister Without Portfolio Chu Yun-peng (朱雲鵬), Financial Supervisory Commission Vice Chairwoman Lee Jih-chu (李紀珠), Hon Hai Group (鴻海集團) chairman Terry Gou (郭台銘), Taipei 101 CEO Diana Chen (陳敏薰), Xue Xue Institute Founder P.S. Lin (林伯實), and others.

The SEF will soon open up 10 board positions for the first time since its founding 18 years ago. The first-ever expansion plan of the board of directors will be advance by SEF Chairman Chiang Ping-kun (江丙坤) to the incumbent board of directors. After inner-commission reviews and evaluations, the new board members will take their new positions in the beginning of December.

Mainland Affairs Council Chairwoman Lai Shin-yuan (賴幸媛) said during an interview with the Chinese-language Commercial Times yesterday that the expansion of the SEF was to reflect the need of the foundation, which has recently seen an increase number of tasks to handle. Owing to the personnel shortage, the SEF decided to make the expansion decision. While asked if the expansion has anything to do with the upcoming meeting between SEF Chairman Chiang Pin-kun and Association for Relations Across the Taiwan Strait (ARATS) Chairman Chen Yunlin (陳雲林), Lai denied.
