As an official of the Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MOTC), Danny Wang oversaw the legal research to establish regulatory oversight and implementation methods by agencies. He directed one of the biggest full-scale legal research projects at the MOTC, regarding Taiwan’s casino gaming policy and control, serving as the main government liaison in multidisciplinary discussions and coordination with over 20 government agencies on varying issues such as taxes, economic development, education, public health, and others.
After he left government, Danny effectively developed and implemented the overall strategy for passing the first referendum in Taiwan, a major milestone considering the cultural and socio-political implications of reversing a long-standing ban. This opportunity allowed him to work with local governments, communities, scholars, industry groups and others interested in seeing this initiative pass.
In recent years, Danny has expanded his work to other focus areas, namely community and economic development initiatives. In addition to his continual services in the gaming industry, his work now includes those involving technology, medical, organic agriculture, religion, nonprofit strategy, renewable energy, and other private client services.
Danny received his JD degree from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, Boyd School of Law, and his MPA degree from the University of North Carolina MPA@UNC program, with a focus on economic development. He double-majored in political science and economics at the University of Rochester, and has a minor in Japanese culture. He also has received certifications for hotel administration leadership training and casino gaming operations.
