When he was Police Commissioner during the tenure of the Democratic Progressive Party, he also worked on cross-strait anti-crime cooperation. He used these past experiences to gain mutual trust from everyone and enable them to continue exchanges.

We will continue to communicate on various ways to help improve the country’s epidemic prevention capabilities.
