    Deputy Mayor Yeh of Kaohsiung City(12) representing Mayor Han attended the banquet of Southern California Monte Jade Science & Technology Association in Los Angeles. He said he meets with so many outstanding entrepreneurs in Los Angeles this evening, and he is looking forward to bringing the resources, technology and capital of the US business community to Kaohsiung. As the Youth Venture Fund and the Youth Bureau are to be established by Kaohsiung City Government, it will help young citizens in Kaohsiung start a career and have better development.

     

    He said that the most important policy since Mayor Han’s inauguration is to beef up Kaohsiung’s economy. Kaohsiung’s land area is 10 times bigger than Taipei and its population is nearly 2.8 million, but the economy has been stagnant in the past 20 years. Therefore, how to revitalize Kaohsiung’s economy is one of the most important missions for Mayor Han. Kaohsiung is actually the heart of Taiwan. If Kaohsiung’s economy is booming, the entire Taiwan’s economy will be as well. If people pay more attention to Kaohsiung and overturn Kaohsiung, Taiwan will also do.

     

    He noted that although Los Angeles’s land area is much bigger than Kaohsiung and has more resources, Kaohsiung has many in common with Los Angeles. For example, Kaohsiung has the largest port in Taiwan and it is rated as 15th international port in the world. Los Angeles is also a significant port in the United States, so he hopes that there will be more exchanges and cooperation with Los Angeles in the near future.

     

    He emphasized that Mayor Han often said that “Get goods out, Bring people in, so Kaohsiung makes big money” This slogan is not only selling agricultural and fishery products. Furthermore, it is hoped to upgrade Kaohsiung’s industry. When the industrial products are upgraded and exported, Taiwan can revitalize economic export. He hopes that more tourists can come visit Taiwan and Kaohsiung. And with the association’s members’ deep emotional connection to their hometown, he hopes more technology, know-how and capital can be brought back to Taiwan and to Kaohsiung.
