TaiwanICDF Technical Mission Leader and Chief Project Manager Conference 2018 Draws to a Close

TaiwanICDF Technical Mission Leader and Chief Project Manager Conference 2018 Draws to a Close

To respond to Taiwan’s diplomatic challenges and continually improve foreign aid effectiveness, the International Cooperation and Development Fund (TaiwanICDF) recently conducted the Technical Mission Leader and Chief Project Manager Conference 2018. The week-long conference, held from February 5 to 9, brought together the organization’s mission leaders at Taiwan Technical Missions and chief project managers stationed overseas for a brainstorming and discussion forum on international cooperation and new approaches toward technical cooperation.

In his opening remarks to the conference, Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs José María Liu said that development assistance has become an important component for consolidating diplomatic relations of embassies abroad. As such, to strengthen Taiwan’s foreign relations, the provision of development assistance should be reformed and refined to respond to international trends and to the expectations of the public and private sectors of Taiwan. Further, Vice Minister Liu also hoped all the mission leaders and chief project managers can guide their teams and work closely together to complete the tasks assigned by overseas embassies.

The conference gave mission leaders and chief project managers the chance to boost their know-how via discussion on three main issues and eight topics, including diplomatic relations, operational efficiency, project management, and the streamlining of procedures. To boost exchange and forge consensus among all members stationed at Taiwan Technical Missions worldwide, each technical mission held a brainstorming session prior to the conference to provide their comments and feedback on the issues, with the conference following up on their proceeds. In addition, the TaiwanICDF asked participants to convey the conclusions of the conference to all mission members to further enhance aid effectiveness.
