Thank you, mTARC, for inviting me to speak at the Taiwan Automotive International Forum. It is an honour to present my insights alongside esteemed speakers at this event. Autonomous vehicles are going to transform the transport sector in the next decade. With the rapid advances in this relatively new technology, it is imperative that countries prepare their policy, regulatory, legal and social environments to embrace this change.
They need to be fully prepared to deal with the wide-ranging infrastructure, consumer readiness and cybersecurity consequences. In this respect, associations such as mTARC have a crucial role to play alongside the government and the industry to accelerate the smooth adoption of AV technology. I would like to congratulate mTARC on the outstanding work it has done so far in this aspect, and I am confident that with the continued efforts of mTARC, the Taiwanese autonomous vehicles landscape will make rapid progress.
