Content of Workshop: On March 22, AIT, Taiwan’s Ministry of Justice Investigation Bureau, the Japan-Taiwan Exchange Association, the Australian Office in Taipei, and the Slovak Economic and Cultural Office in Taipei co-hosted a virtual Global Cooperation and Training Framework (GCTF) workshop entitled “Combating Digital Crime.” This was the first GCTF event that focused on how law enforcement can work together to combat cyber-enabled financial crimes. Even though Taiwan has been prevented from participating meaningfully in Interpol and many other international organizations, today’s GCTF event highlighted both the many ways that Taiwan is sharing its expertise with the international community, as well as how the global cyber community shares lessons with Taiwan to tackle the shared challenge of digital crime. Established in 2015, the GCTF allows practitioners from around the world to learn what Taiwan has to offer and to strengthen connections between experts as they jointly address 21st century shared challenges that do not respect borders.
Key Attendees: Ministry of Justice Minister Ching-Hsiang Tsai, Ministry of Justice Investigation Bureau (MJIB) Director-General Chun-Li Wang, and Slovak Economic and Cultural Office Representative Martin Podstavek.
Number of Participating Countries: 32
