This is Daniel García 丹倪，journalist based in Taipei working for the Spanish newspaper El País 國家報。
First of all, congratulations for your appointment.
I’m writing a profile about you and I would like to ask you two questions:In terms of digitalization and e-Rulemaking, how would you like to see Taiwan in a few years from now?
I saw that you participated last May in the conference Common Technology and the Democratic City in Madrid, and you keep cooperating with Medialab-Prado. How do you see Spain in terms of e-Rulemaking and digitalization? Do you have some advice for us?
1-1. During September before I take the post, my visit to Europe is focused on catching up on the literature & best practices related to digital governance, and learn from public sector, private sector and civil society participants.
1-2. During October I intend to work as an “apprentice Minister” with my fellow Ministers, jointly participating in key meetings & assisting with my facilitation skills, in order to learn the challenges and structures of the current public service system.
1-3. I expect to have a more clear synthesis by the end of year — perhaps ask me that question again at that time?
2-1. I think city-level innovation is important; I’m especially impressed with the Consul system’s continuous evolution in response from the public.
2-2. One of my research interest, ICT-enabled scalable listening, is aligned with Medialab Prado’s mission, so I intend to visit Madrid late-September to build a tele-presence robotic avatar, so I can virtually visit Spain from afar to learn of your progresses in the future.
2-3. Again, once I learn more of your current structures and challenges, I’m happy to compare notes and offer my assistance by then.
Really appreciated, 感謝您的時間.
