4:37 pm
one champion of transparency is, audrey tang, she's trans and post gender, describing her pronouns and gender as what ever named one of the world's 20 most influential people in digital government. she has been reinventing the nature of politics in her role as ty, once digital minister, since 2016 as additional minister is 1st to show that a government is not a black box. and so what i'm trying to show here is that if we can have to curry a public service, have more direct conversation with people in a more effective way. they can also sympathize with the people more. so the government can trust the citizens more. and whether the government trust this is as more by being more transparent and accountable, some citizens will want to participate because whatever they offer, they can see how it's translated into real policy.
4:38 pm
i only film because you film and people who view the work that we do as a much more balanced idea because behind a traditional camera, the person holding the camera is invisible to the audience. so what i'm trying to do is to restore the balance to the people and see both sides of the camera. and then it makes sure as people can feel density can also be you or they may. that means of include more people potentially into this conversation. on this evening, the minister headed to an interview on the night night show

4:40 pm
a ready reality. i don't give or take orders. and the key means that no one seems lute power, rather, power is highly decentralizing. those who equate anarchy with having no government, make the mistake of believing that no one word that's a misnomer. so we need to be precise that if i face how i get it, a lot of the things that she does is really on golf. she puts everything on her agenda online. it's kind of like truman, the movie and it because the idea is to, for the government to be open, like an open government, everyone can see and scrutinize what the government is doing. and it's these kind of ideas that's really making innovations. and it's almost like in the top yeah. what,
4:41 pm
what tolkien government would look like in many talk shows the agenda is set by the comedian facilitator and the host to enter guest. right. but this opens up the agenda, setting power to everybody in the audience. not only can they discover what other people in the audience are interested in, but they can do so and like each other's questions without interrupting our conversation. i me welcome to the night night, sho, get today. so come katy equations at the age of 8. they started a company at 16 and retired at $33.00. i shall give a warm welcome to tie one's youngest minister, audrey tangle. ah,

4:48 pm
i'm not sure whether there will be a political recognition of what diplomatic recognition in the future. but i think the political tramp is dear, that the political relations, or, ah, diplomatic relations between taiwan and the european countries or federal democracies are getting better and better. and we can certainly hope that one day taiwan will be recognized by all the federal democracies as a member of democracy or the taiwan is a member, a state that is a ah, on the equal footing us other democracies. beyond these diplomatic complications, life goes on here on the beautiful island but just outside this picture, perfect backdrop, a serious threat is looking in july 2019 taiwan purchased
4:49 pm
u as weapons including tanks and missiles for 2000000000 dollars, who tried to avoid a potential conflict in between the 2 size, either in our, our languages, statements or in our actions will try to avoid war. and unfortunately, tiwana slogan is so close to china and they being a heavy, all kinds of propagandist untie one. and therefore, we are concerned that thought a war might break out, not because of taiwan, but because china wants to resolve its own domestic problems, the ongoing threat divides to population and shapes its everyday life. you're either full or again, china. here there is no middle ground ah
