Taiwan Connection project
Under this project, the MOE is using existing resources in the countries targeted by the New Southbound Policy to facilitate bilateral educational exchanges with them. These include the MOE's overseas offices, Mandarin language teachers dispatched by Taiwan education centers, alumni associations of Taiwanese universities, Taiwan Studies projects, overseas Taiwanese schools and Taiwanese business networks. The MOE also incentivizes domestic universities to develop new exchange platforms in countries or regions still lacking MOE offices or relevant personnel, such as the Philippines, Myanmar and Sri Lanka, to promote tangible bilateral educational cooperation and exchanges.

Overseas Taiwanese schools
Overseas Taiwanese schools are private schools established in foreign countries in accordance with Article 85 of the Private School Law. Supported by the MOE, each school is required to operate in compliance with Taiwan’s national education guidelines and systems. The MOE encourages domestic universities to cooperate with overseas Taiwanese schools, which with their teaching staff and facilities abroad have maintained close ties with overseas Taiwanese enterprises and compatriot groups. Domestic universities can use the resources of overseas Taiwanese schools to foster education development and experience sharing, and to build a network of contacts with alumni of Taiwan universities and overseas compatriot communities, while also developing overseas Taiwanese schools into bases or links for Taiwan’s student recruitment operations in the schools’ regions and Southeast Asia.
