As the largest national infrastructure project since the Ten Major Infrastructure Projects in the 70s, the Taoyuan Aerotropolis Project appears to be a critical piece in Taiwan’s future. The project was previously announced in 2012, but was tabled for years due to various obstacles including land acquisition. Now the project again appears ready for take-off.
On January 26, the Taoyuan Aerotropolis Co. invited representatives from AmCham Taipei to the Taoyuan Aerotropolis Vision Hall to get a first-hand look at the plans for this program. Members and guests were greeted by Huang Shih-cho, Chairman of the Taoyuan Aerotropolis Co. and Hsieh Huai-hui, the company’s Vice President, who provided a thorough briefing and addressed the visitors’ questions in a Q&A session. Huang emphasized four of Taoyuan’s key advantages as a potential regional hub:
- Excellent quality of workforce
- Complete supply chain
- Central location: three hours to major Asian cities
- Low earthquake frequency
