Although the COVID-19 epidemic has affected the academic plan of many schools around the world in the first half of 2020, ICDL programme is still achieving major breakthroughs and recognitions in Taiwan.
National Penghu University of Science and Technology (NPU) Taiwan officially recognised and implemented ICDL programme in May 2020.
