Government in a New Era: De-Regulating Higher Education Rethinking Poor Funding and Policies to Create World-Class Universities

The number of Taiwanese high school graduates going abroad has risen year by year. The number of high school students who chose to study abroad in 2018 has doubled that of 2013. Generous scholarships and language advantages have continuously attracted Taiwanese talents. As Chinese and Southeast Asian universities recruit and prestigious universities abroad attract Taiwanese students, how should Taiwan’s higher education respond? How should the government amend and loosen current regulations, so as to enhance the competitiveness of higher education, keep talent within Taiwan. These are major challenges for the higher education system in Taiwan.


The Fair Winds Foundation and Spark Taiwan is co-organizing the “Breakthrough Forum” series on “Government in a New Era,” focusing on higher education, medical services, and financial services and future policy directions emphasizing de-regulation. The first panel on higher education will be moderated by Chairman Jiang Yi-huah of the Fair Winds Foundation and feature Sindy Teng, dual-degree accounting student of National Taiwan University and the City University of Hong Kong; Chairman Eric Yang of TutorABC; Chen Wei-hung, former principal of Taipei Municipal Jianguo High School; and Professor Wu Se-hwa, former minister of education. The panelists will share the current state, impact, strategic responses, and overseas experiences so as to brainstorm and create a better learning environment for future students.
