Taiwan's 'Digital Minister' holds democratic workshop in NYC

TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Taiwan's notorious 'Digital Minister' of the Executive Yuan, Audrey Tang (唐鳳), held the first ever "vTaiwan Open Consultation & Participation Officers Training" in New York City June 11 and June 12.

Tang's lecture on digital governance at last year's Personal Democracy Forum (PDF) in New York City received a very warm welcome. The PDF organizers felt that Taiwan's experience in particular is worth learning from and spent over a year arranging the visit of Tang and seven other government officials.

This year Tang stayed in New York City from June 11 through June 17. On June 11 and June 12 Tang led a workshop, "vTaiwan Open Consultation & Participation Officers Training," for 30 participants.
