TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Premier Liu Chao-hsiuan (劉兆玄) presided over the administrative report conference in the Executive Yuan Wednesday morning. Liu ordered government agencies to accelerate the operation of government employment boosting program to elevate the execution rate to 65 percent from 45 percent by June.

Liu heard the report on 2009-2012 employment enhancement program made by Minister without Portfolio James Hsueh (薛承泰) this morning. According to a government official, Liu was satisfied with the current and estimated future progress, but also urged related departments to step up the process.

The official said Liu made a directive in March that all departments should put the job boosting project as priority and speed up the process. The departments therefore advanced the project to be done between July and December to complete from April to June.

According to data from related government agencies, the original goal of offering jobs to 15,612 people by the end of April was raised to 25,717, if the program could be executed ahead of schedule.

With the new progress, a total of 43,812 people is expected to acquire a job by June, 17,770 people more than the original schedule. Liu expressed satisfaction toward the new plan, but still called on all departments to make sure the solid implementation of the policy.
