To ensure assistance for financially disadvantaged students, the government has initiated the student loan program and negotiated with many banks to get lower loan interest rates, which has benefited many students. In order to continue supporting students, the Bank of Taiwan will spare no efforts in cooperating with the government. The Bank of Taiwan hopes that students with student loans can complete their studies and lay a good academic foundation that will assist them in their future careers and enable them to give back to their country and society.
