Since its inception in January 2010, the mission of the Taiwan Brain Trust (TBT) has been to give Taiwan a vision of new nation in the face of global political and economic challenges, taking the initiative to offer policy advice and recommendations to the government and civil society to that end. Now that a local political power took over the reins of government, the mission that the TBT had given itself has been realized. As such, TBT will suspend operations as of 31 August 2016. We are confident that TBT’s vision will gradually materialize under the new administration.
