Description

Meanwhile, Lennon Chang, senior lecturer of criminology at Monash University and a representative of the Taiwanese Association of Australia, said trade was not limited to goods and extended into national security.

“Taiwan is always a test field for cyberattacks [from Beijing],” he told the Committee. “There are a lot of things I believe the Australian government would be able to learn from Taiwan in how to counter disinformation campaigns, how to build a better cyber capacity and cyber ability in countering illegitimate or unsolicited attacks.”

Chang also cited Taiwan’s record as a leading manufacturer of information and communication technology, including Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, the world’s largest chip maker, and AAC Technologies Holdings, the world’s largest chip packing service provider.
