Gathering the industry-government-academia-research momentum of the drone industrial chain, the Ministry of Transportation and Communications, R.O.C. (MOTC) held the “UAS Taiwan Founding Ceremony and International Forum” today (March 23rd) at the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center. It is expected to guide the development of the domestic drone technology industry, create the cluster effect, and foster domestic and foreign business opportunities. Minister Wang Kwo-Tsai of MOTC was personally present to address the event. It is hoped that the convergence of industry-government-academic-research momentum can enable the drone industry to achieve co-prosperity and connect to the world.

Additionally, Executive Vice President Yasuhiro Senda of JUIDA (Japan UAS Industrial Development Association) congratulated UAS Taiwan on its founding via video conferencing. We look forward to more exchange and cooperation opportunities in the drone industries of Taiwan and Japan.

The function of UAS Taiwan includes: Bridging communication between the government and the industries, promoting resource integration and industrial cooperation, promoting international exchanges, and assisting the public sector in implementing the development strategies for the drone technology industry. We hope domestic drone-related supply chain operators will join to bring industrial momentum into full play, seek drone industry and international exchange and cooperation opportunities for Taiwan, thereby expanding global business opportunities together.

Representative companies from Germany, Japan, and Singapore attended the international forum

In addition, in order to promote drone industry exchanges, the International Forum on the Development of UAS was also held today (23rd). Drone Industry Insight German lecturers, JUIDA Japanese lecturers, Volocopter Singaporean lecturers, and domestic experts and scholars engaged in in-depth discussions on drone industry development through drone-related “international trends”, “field cooperation”, “Future development”, and other issues. Through international exchanges and cooperation, UAS Taiwan’s visibility can be enhanced, which will aid in connecting to the world.

MOTC bridges communication with the industries to jointly promote drone industry development.

Committed to drone talent cultivation, the MOTC will continue to hold the 2nd Navigation Cup -Drone Creative Application Contest and Drone Integration Demonstration Plan, hoping to attract more innovative talents and inject R&D technologies into the industry. At the same time, in order to gather inter-ministerial resources, the MOTC and the MOEA have applied for R&D and application plans at the Office of Science and Technology, Executive Yuan. The drone development focuses are the “patrol type” and the “transport and supply type”. Corporate bodies and operators are welcome to jointly engage in technological R&D and promote drone industry developments through public-private partnerships.
