To accelerate business development in various regions, the headquarters initiated the Global Elite Mingle (GEM) international talent reserve project in 2023.

The outstanding Taiwanese students are arranged to intern at various Delta locations worldwide. Upon graduation, they have the option to either work locally or contribute their expertise to Taiwan, thereby enhancing the international perspectives and employment flexibility of the talent pool.
