Taipei--The public is more optimistic about the country's future as seen in the rebound in President Tsai Ing-wen's (???) public support, the Presidential Office said Monday.
Spokesman Alex Huang (???) said that over the past few months, the public has become more confident and optimistic over the country's overall development, whether in terms of the economy, pension reform or infrastructure development.
Huang was responding to a recent poll in which Tsai's approval rating rebounded from a sharp fall over the past two months.
The Taiwanese Public Opinion Foundation, which publishes monthly polls, said 41.4 percent of respondents approved Tsai's handling of major national issues, including policies and personnel appointments, compared with 41.3 percent who expressed dissatisfaction.
That represented an increase of 7.6 percentage points in Tsai's approval numbers and a 13.1 percentage point decline in dissatisfaction with her performance from the previous month.
Huang said the core task of the administrative team is to promote reform and solve public problems, and the government will continue to do its best to "do the right things."
