TAIPEI, Taiwan — The president of Ford Lio Ho Motor Co., a local automaker and primary dealer of
Ford vehicles, urged the government to speed up regulatory changes to support ride-sharing services, which have failed to thrive in Taiwan.
Before policies for ride-sharing are put in place and electronic payment platforms take off, Ford Lio Ho is reluctant to leap into the business, Ford Lio Ho Motor Co. (福特六和) President Tim Ju (朱忠園) told The China Post.
Asked whether Ford Lio Ho has devised concrete plans for ride-sharing, Ju said their team had created proposals but remained on the fence and were closely observing U-Car and Uber’s operations in Taiwan.
The firm will not venture into the ride-sharing market before spotting promising business opportunities, he added. [FULL STORY]
