Taiwan launches English video streaming platform Taiwan +
Taiwan has launched its first English language international streaming platform called Taiwan +. The new state-funded English-language video platform aims to connect Taiwan with the world. Taiwan’s national news agency Central News Agency (CNA) was tasked with overseeing the project.
Aimed at an English-speaking audience, Taiwan + consists of media professionals from the US, UK, Canada, France and Australia and local industry experts who work together to spread the latest news on Taiwan, international affairs and a wide range of topics. The platform also sources stories from Taiwan’s public and private media organizations.
President Tsai Ing-wen said, “Taiwan + is an exciting new initiative to tell Taiwan’s story. Generations of Taiwanese have fought to turn this country into a vibrant democracy that protects freedom of speech and expression. “
Vice President Lai Ching-te added, “I hope the platform can be the starting point from which the world can learn what Taiwanese people think and want, what Taiwan is doing, and what we can contribute to the world.”
Taiwan + is a project commissioned by the Ministry of Culture from the CNA and “marks an important milestone in the history of the country’s mass media,” said Minister of Culture Lee Yung-te. He thanked the legislators and experts for making this happen.
“I hope to make this platform a form of expansion, connection and infinite possibilities, as Taiwan embraces ethnic, cultural and linguistic diversity, and introducing Taiwan to the world through dynamic storytelling and news,” said Joanne Tsai, CEO of Taiwan +. Tsai has over 25 years of experience in international media such as NBC / CNBC, National Geographic and Fox International Channels.
