POLICY BASIS

Biotechnology has been listed in the "Challenge 2008" six-year national development plan, and one of the 'star' industries in the "Two Trillion, Twin Stars" Plan. Since the announcement of the "Promotion Plan for the Biotechnology Industry" by the Executive Yuan in August 1995, related ministries within the government have begun to execute and plan measures for the development of biotechnology. Among these measures, the Ministry of Education (MOE) assumes the major responsibility of the training and development of personnel for the biotechnology industry.
