Ex-economics official to take up Singapore post

by November 14, 2016 General

The government originally named Antonio Chiang to the post, but he resigned in August before taking office amid controversy swirling around him for a drunk driving violation in Taipei.

At that time, the Presidential Office expressed respect for Chiang’s decision and said another candidate would be chosen to fill the post.

Liang previously served as director of the economic division at Taiwan’s representative office in the United States and is currently chairman of the government-funded Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA).
