Program for Promoting Six Core Strategic Industries in Taiwan
The promotion of Six Core Strategic Industries include information and digital industries, cybersecurity industry, precision health industry, green and renewable energy industry, national defense and strategic industries, and strategic stockpile industries. By moving early with preparations and building on the foundations of the 5+2 Innovative Industries Program, Taiwan will gain first-mover advantage to capitalize on opportunities in the post-pandemic era created by the reorganization of global supply chains.
Information and Digital Industries: Promoting Taiwan as the digital base that contributes to global prosperity and security.
Through research and development on next-generation semiconductor technology, expansion of the application field of artificial intelligence and Internet of Things (AIoT), and integrate domestic 5G ORAN (Open Network Architecture) solutions to main the leading ICT technology of Taiwan, to export AIoT solutions and enter into international telecommunications equipment and systems suppliers.
Cybersecurity Industry: Create the world trusted cybersecurity system and industrial chain.
Take research and development in to such protective technologies as 5G and semiconductors will be conducted, the solutions on AIoT and healthcare will be developed, and an organization for cybersecurity defense and cross-country collaboration will be established. The strategy is to enhance protection of these emerging areas and forge high-end testbeds.  
Precision Health Industry: Make Taiwan as the global benchmark country for precision health and scientific technological pandemic prevention.
A platform which integrates materials of the Taiwan Biobank and National Health Insurance Research Database will be established, systems of precision prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care will be built, precision epidemic prevention products will be developed, and international biomedical business opportunities will be explored. This approach will promote Taiwan as a role model in the area of epidemic prevention around the world.  
National Defense and Strategic Industries: Promote national defense independence and make Taiwan as the important supply chain for the global aerospace ship and space industry.
The maintenance center of F16 will be established, self-maintenance resources of military aircraft will be built, the core technology of aerospace and indigenous naval vessel industries will be developed, while a national defense supply chain will also be established. For the space industry, low earth orbit satellites and ground equipment will be developed, and the Taiwan national space brand will be promoted.

Green and Renewable Energy Industry: Make Taiwan as the model of green energy in Asia-Pacific Taiwan will build a renewable energy industrial zone and R&D base, strengthen cybersecurity of renewable energy certificate transactions, and create an offshore wind power national team. The country will also attempt to gain a crucial role in the Asia-Pacific wind power supply chain, enabling local wind power products to export to other countries.  
Strategic Stockpile Industries: Build and ensure the steady provision of critical supplies.
The steady provision of critical supplies will be ensured by stabilizing main supply chains including energy, food safety, daily necessities, medical supplies, disaster relief, sand and gravel etc. This will also involve controlling such critical raw materials as semiconductor materials and equipment, automotive batteries, active pharmaceutical ingredients and 15 additional important industrial materials.
