Arrival of new group Taiwan Youth Overseas Service recruits

Arrival of new group Taiwan Youth Overseas Service recruits

The 16th group of servicemen from the Taiwan Youth Overseas Service was dispatched in October and successively arrived in their host countries, adding a new force to our Taiwan Technical Missions and international cooperation work.

A total of 97 men were admitted to this group of Taiwan Youth Overseas Service. Their professional backgrounds cover 29 areas including agronomy, horticulture, water conservation, aquaculture, livestock, public health, nutrition, information management, business management, information engineering, communications network and medical care.

After arriving in their host country, these servicemen bring fresh energy and expertise to our Taiwan Technical Missions and foreign aid cooperation projects. For example, Chienshun Wang, who was dispatched to Ecuador in Central and South America to support the Province Bamboo Industry Development Project , immediately assisted in counseling producers to participate in the 2016 Orchid and Handicraft Special Exhibition in Quito Botanical Gardens. In addition to actively promoting the bamboo products of bamboo art manufacturers in the province of Santa Elena and presenting the bamboo design center of the province and the bamboo layer manufacturing process, Wang also took the opportunity to research the demand trend of the local high-end handicraft market.

Tungyun Chen, who was dispatched to St. Kitts and Nevis in the Caribbean to support the Vegetable, Fruit and Upland Crop Quality and Safety Improvement Project, relied on his soil expertise and Taiwan wetland survey experience to collect data from the Great Salt Pond and nearby region of the southwest coastal wetland of St. Kitts and Nevis, to serve as a reference for future land use in the country.

In addition, Hsuhuai Chiu, who has medical expertise and was dispatched to Africa to support the Eswatini Medical Mission, assisted the attending physician in performing the first spinal surgery of the country despite the limited and poor quality of medical equipment.

Since its inception in 2001, the Taiwan Youth Overseas Service is now in its 16h year, with a total of 1,265 men having contributed to international cooperation work. More than 95 young men have joined the TaiwanICDF and Taiwan Technical Missions. Seventy-eight percent of them have gone on to pursue careers in the government sector and various other fields. These accomplished young men are examples of the effectiveness of the Taiwan Youth Overseas Service in developing overseas talents for Taiwan.
