Executive Yuan

The Executive Yuan is the country's highest administrative organ, and exercises the powers granted to it under the Constitution. The Executive Yuan Council—composed of the president and vice president of the Executive Yuan (commonly referred to as the premier and vice premier), the ministers and chairpersons of the various ministries, councils, and commissions, and the several ministers without portfolio—makes decisions on important matters brought before it. To promote organizational reform, the Organization Act of the Executive Yuan was amended on February 3, 2010 and January 19, 2022, and authorizes a total of 30 agencies, which are 14 ministries, nine councils or commissions, three independent administrative institutions, the Central Bank, the National Palace Museum, and two directorates-general, with any new agencies to be established as organizational reform progresses. The Executive Yuan, R.O.C.
