Taipei, Aug. 7 (CNA) Taiwan’s National Development Council (NDC) has completed its drafting of a new economic immigration act that targets three categories of foreign talent — professionals, mid-level skilled workers, and Taiwanese expatriates and their offspring.
The Cabinet-level council released the draft act late Monday, nearly two months after unveiling an outline of the measure aimed at attracting more overseas talent to meet Taiwan’s needs in developing key industries and easing a looming manpower shortage.
Investment immigration was excluded from the draft act at the last minute and will remain covered by existing laws, NDC deputy chief Kao Shien-quey (高仙桂) said.
