Premier Cho pledges to lead Cabinet with innovative thinking

The government will strive to spur economic development and expand the social safety net with more polices to serve the most pressing needs of the people, Premier Cho Jung-tai said May 20.
During his inauguration at the Executive Yuan, the new premier said his Cabinet will prioritize upholding safety across seven categories: cyber safety, food safety, housing safety, public safety, road safety, school safety and safety from crime. Part of the approach will focus on cracking down on corruption, drugs, fraud, guns and organized crime.
Cho also called for the fast tracking of reconstruction in the eastern county of Hualien, which was hit by a magnitude 7.2 earthquake April 3, while also pledging to continue the promotion of digital transformation and transition to net-zero carbon emissions.
The premier said that the Cabinet will coordinate and cooperate with the legislative branch to implement polices for the benefit of the country and its people. He hopes that the Legislative Yuan will pass the four bills and amendments approved by the Executive Yuan to empower antifraud efforts as soon as possible.
Cho also thanked former President Tsai Ing-wen for her legacy that has successfully enhanced Taiwan’s economic resilience and achieved unprecedented success in promoting digital and net-zero transition. The government remains resolute in its determination to build Taiwan into a nuclear-free country for the generations to come, the premier added.
Born in 1959, Cho earned a law degree from National Chung Hsing University in 1984, and served as a member of Taipei City Council from 1989 to 1998, moving to the Legislative Yuan in 1999. After leaving the Legislature in 2004, he worked in the Executive Yuan as secretary-general, spokesperson and minister without portfolio, as well as in the Presidential Office as deputy secretary-general.
