Premier Sean Chen (陳沖), talking about the need to preserve aboriginal languages in Taiwan, said that the Executive Yuan's Council of Indigenous Peoples and the Ministry of Education need to establish a unified writing system for aboriginal languages, because only then will it be possible to promote those languages better.

Of course, such a system was established years ago (the pdf linked there is from 2005), and you can see that system sometimes being used in aboriginal programing. But outside of that agency, the writing system hasn't done a lot of good because the political class and the MOE are not genuinely interested in mother language preservation.
