I attended BOFT/MEET TAIWAN's reimbursement explanation meeting at May 3,
at then I knew there's such requirement that we need to follow. And their
original request of list of attendees contains more data including full
name, nationality, phone, email and occupation. One of their reasons they
doing so is to 1. count heads of foreigners, 2. make sure one foreign
person has not been working in Taiwan for 6 months within a year.

After the meeting I called phone to BOFT to ask them whether they accept
statistics instead of list of attendees, they denied at then.

At the week of global team meeting I proposed such question in the meeting
[1] but it ends up taking too long to act on gathering the consent.

Later, I was told by Andrew Lee that it is acceptable for BOFT/MEET TAIWAN
to give them only initials of name and nationality (though I am not sure
about this).  It is still identifiable personal data so we still need to
gather consent from people.  However they have probably loosen the
requirements so I think it might be probable to ask them if they accept
statistics again.
