Thank you, Minister. I think that’s all for our interview.
But very often in the Western world we are experiencing a lack of a long view.
My last question: can Taiwan’s model be applied also somewhere else and be an example for somewhere else?
Do you think that the Taiwan international space recognition is increasing recently? Also, how can Taiwan apply digital democracy to help Taiwan to reach abroad the same results as it did on board, to strengthen the relationships and partnerships?
Is there still a need of another conversation about this, for example about semi conductors?
Another thing is, Taiwan to participate to the democratic supply chains that now US, and I know the US are trying to push excluding China. For example, on some particular sector like technology.
Yeah. I want to ask, what’s the relationship between Taiwan government, Taiwan state and its private companies?

In China, we are seeing a crackdown, if this is the correct word on digital and tech platforms. First of all, I wish to ask you if this is the correct word to describe it, crackdown or rectification or what else, and what’s at risk in this process?
Yeah, I mean that.
Would you consider Taiwan a digital sovereign state and what Taiwan is doing about the data protection?
In Italy, we tend to think that giving more room to digital and technology could threaten the privacy. Is this true or there is a way to combine the two things. I mean, safety and also privacy?
I actually many times wrote that on January 3rd, 2020. I came here for following the election. I already experienced that the Taiwan airport there were the thermal scanners.
What is the digital and technology role in fighting the pandemic and in Taiwan?
Could you provide, maybe, an example of it?
You said often democracy improves as more people participate, of course. So how Taiwan was able to improve its people’s participation to democracy?
Minister Tang, digital and democracy, these two worlds, how can they fit together? How could you make it fit so well together?
