sick af­ter eat­ing the sand­wiches as of Aug. 6, ac­cord­ing to Hong Kong author­i­ties, but the FDA said it re­mains un­clear what caused the prob­lem.

The sand­wiches are highly pop­u­lar with Hong Kong tourists, who bring car­tons of them home as gifts or even at the re­quest of shops look­ing to re­sell them.

It was not clear where the 84 peo­ple in Hong Kong got the sand­wiches and if the sand­wiches came from a sin­gle batch brought back by a tourist or mul­ti­ple batches. tional De­vel­op­ment Coun­cil said.

Since the gov­ern­ment rolled out the wire­less ser­vice in 2011, more than 100 mil­lion peo­ple have reg­is­tered, the spokesper­son said.

De­spite start­ing life as a ser­vice pro­vid­ing free ba­sic Wi-Fi ac­cess in cer­tain in­door public ar­eas at gov­ern­ment agen­cies, the sys­tem has since in­te­grated the re­sources of 13 univer­si­ties and Taipei City Gov­ern­ment. It re­cently co­or­di­nated with the Tourism Bureau and the Min­istry of the In­te­rior to stream­line the reg­is­tra­tion process for for­eign visi­tors.

Backed by the cen­tral gov­ern­ment and Taipei City gov­ern­ment, iTai­wan con­tin­ues to ex­pand its num­ber of hotspots, which are ex­pected to reach 23,000 when New Taipei City gov­ern­ment joins the ser­vice in Septem­ber. said Fri­day at the un­veil­ing of a tal­ent re­cruit­ment cen­ter that Tai­wan will pro­vide one-stop ser­vice to help tal­ent re­cruited from abroad and their fam­i­lies to adapt to life in Tai­wan.

The tal­ent re­cruit­ment cen­ter was for­mally added Fri­day to the In­vesTai­wan Ser­vice Cen­ter that was launched on Aug. 8, 2010, and Deng said it rep­re­sented an im­por­tant move for­ward in Tai­wan’s ef­forts to re­cruit top tal­ent.

Not­ing the im­por­tance of tal­ent in a com­pet­i­tive world, Deng said that while Tai­wan con­tin­ues to nur­ture its own tal­ent, it must also bring in top peo­ple from around the world, and the new func­tion was cre­ated for that rea­son.

Deng said pro­fes­sion­als com­ing to work in Tai­wan are likely to have prob­lems get­ting ac­cus­tomed to daily life here, and he hoped to use the cen­ter as a one-stop so­lu­tion to help them solve the dif­fi­cul­ties en­coun­tered in their daily lives and at work.

The new tal­ent re­cruit­ment cen­ter will be con­nected with the over­seas mis­sions of the Min­istry of For­eign Af­fairs and the Min­istry of Eco­nomic Af­fairs (MOEA) HiRe­cruit web­site.

It will also hook up with 65 ma­jor en­ter­prises in the coun­try to un­der­stand their needs and open a chan­nel through which they can find new tal­ent.
