Life is getting harder, and the "choices of God" is influencing the "choices of man". In such chaos, members of Archilife should work with one heart and mind and make the right choice. Overtime, members of Archilife have emerged in all areas. I look forward to seeing all of you marching toward a new symbiosis civilization, creating a triple-win situation for the industrial, public and academic sectors and leading Taiwan towards a better future."

First, Mr. Yang Cheng-fan, a member of the Public Policy Committee, presented a speech on the "Cutting-edge Medical Technology Developed in the Recent Decade". The Speaker began from the financial health of the National Health Insurance. He continued to say that, in the recent decade, the science of medical supplies, drugs and surgical procedures have taken a giant leap, but they are still inseparable from the basic medical science. The speaker moved on to introduce some of the cutting-edge medical technologies, including the revolutionizing target drugs, spiral knife radiation treatment, the Da Vinci surgical system, ECMO, new steel sheets and new prosthetic materials and designs, stem cell therapy and PRP injection. Finally, the speaker mentioned that the 2012 winner for Nobel Prize in Medicine made substantial contribution to the mankind for his research in stem cell can be used to cultivate replacement tissues.

  Next, Mr. Lin Fang-ming, a member of the Public Policy Committee, spoke on "Green Building Material Label Policy and Wood-based Green Building Materials". The speaker began his speech by addressing that research achievements will make substantial contribution to the nation's economy only if the developed technology is supported by policies or regulations, and promoted through industrial-academic cooperation. The speaker continued to introduce the "Green Building Material Label System" promoted by the Ministry of the Interior Architecture and Building Research Institute and the green building materials assessment benchmarks, which includes four categories: low dissipation health, ecology, regeneration and high performance. The primary purpose of the Green Building Material Label is to ensure that building materials do not have serious impact on the environment, the quality meets the relevant standards and the materials do not cause harm to human health. Finally, the speaker said that building materials should adapt to the environment and wood-based materials are good choices for their ecological values, carbon sequestration function and sustainable development.

  After the speech, Secretary General Huang Chin-ying presented a gift to the speakers on behalf of the foundation. Then, attendees expressed and exchanged their opinions and views during the piggy hour. The May Archilife Public Policy Communion ended smoothly.
