Vice President Chen Chien-jen is calling on the international hacktivist
community to help amplify Taiwan's voice to promote the country's democratic
development and policy goals.

Speaking at the award ceremony of the 2019 Taiwan Presidential Hackathon in
Taipei, Chen said Taiwan hopes that through the hackathon competition, it can
share the spirit of co-creation with international friends.

According to Chen, this is in line with the purpose of President Tsai
Ing-wen's recent Caribbean visit, which was to share Taiwan's advancements in
the areas of democracy and technology and its resolve to help realize the
United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals.

The second edition of the Presidential Hackathon kicked off in March, with 23
international teams from 15 countries participating under the theme "Enabling
Sustainable Infrastructure."

This year's winners were the teams Mentadak from Malaysia and CoST from
Honduras.

Team Mentadak proposed solutions to eliminate graft and corruption in the
government procurement process, while team CoST applied open data to optimize
the allocation of national resources.
