uberAccording to various media report, car booking app Uber could be banned from Taiwan.

 

State officials claimed that the company did not operate lawfully within the country. The ride sharing app had misrepresented its business, calling itself an IT company, rather than a transport service. As a result of this its license could be revoked.

 

But hours later, the Executive Yuan government said it wanted to discuss options with Uber.

 

The California-based company said it would welcome the discussion.

 

Initially Uber was told to wait till 11th August to discover whether the service would be banned. But later on Wednesday the government announced it would hold a meeting next week to discuss possible amendments of existing laws to keep Uber in the country.

 

Tong Zhenyuan, a spokesman of the Executive Yuan, told the local media that, Uber is not legal under their existing laws and regulations. He also added that the government will take a comprehensive review and come up with a relevant policy and establish a system of fair competition.
