A delegation led by Mr. Min Pin Chang, Director-General of the Department of Investment Services at the Taiwan Ministry of Economic Affairs, visited Kobe University on July 6, and on this occasion a signing ceremony was held for the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Taiwan and Kobe University. The ceremony was attended from Kobe University by President Hiroshi Takeda, Executive Vice President Noriyuki Inoue, Executive Vice President Masaru Fujii, and Career Center Director Chieko Minami.

On May 22, 2017, a delegation from the Department of Investment Services at the Taiwan Ministry of Economic Affairs visited Kobe University, led by its former Director-General Mr. Jianping Wang. During its visit the delegation held a discussion with Executive Vice President Inoue and former Career Center Director Shiro Kashimura, which bore fruit in the form of this year’s signing ceremony.

The ceremony began with greetings from Director-General Chang and President Takeda. Director-General Chang introduced the Taiwan government’s initiatives to internationalize their workforce, and expressed his wishes that this MoU would support Kobe University students seeking employment in Taiwan, and ultimately contribute to strengthening the relationship between Taiwan and Japan. In response to Director-General Chang’s words, President Takeda expressed gratitude to all the Taiwanese organizations involved in organizing the signing ceremony, and referencing Kobe University’s Charter on Education, emphasized the importance of this MoU.

This MoU establishes a cooperative relationship between the Taiwan Ministry of Economic Affairs and Kobe University to facilitate matching Taiwanese companies with Kobe University students who seek Taiwan-based employment. We can look forward to an increase in the number of students from Kobe University pursuing successful careers in Taiwan.
