The head of WCIT Taiwanese delegation and CISA Chairman Yvonne Chiu stated that, "In the face of global competition, Taiwan is already equipped with the basic advantages for developing cloud technology. We are in possession of expertise in hardware manufacturing technologies, innovative research and development, and we are also committed to the education and training of industry professionals on a massive scale. With the help of suitable governmental development policies and industry collaborations, Taiwan will definitely be a strong competitor in the global race of cloud computing and applications. We believe that our participation in WCIT, the Olympic games of the information sector, will bring greater visibility to Taiwan's information industry and showcase our immense capacity for cloud computing technologies. We hope that our attendance at this global event will bring us further opportunities for international exchange and interaction in terms of professional technology."

Yao said that Sean Lien owes Ko Wen-je and his staff an apology for the Blues’ actions and for their bogus charges against the Green camp."
