TAIPEI (Taiwan News)—I-Mei Foods CEO Luis Ko (高志明) and movie director Wu
Nien-jen (吳念真) jointly urged Taiwanese youth to say ‘no’ to drugs at a press conference to release a series of anti-drug short films in Taipei on Thursday.
Taiwan Advertising Council (TAC), of which Ko is the chairman, commissioned Wu and his team to plan and produce the series of anti-drug films, in the hope that the main ideas in these films can be widely promulgated through the channels of government agencies, schools and large enterprises to bring down the number of people taking illegal drugs in Taiwan.
Ko said that the harm of drugs is a serious problem, especially among people of lower socioeconomic status. Very few people notice how serious the problem is because it is not an issue that can be felt by the 23 million Taiwanese people right away, like a blackout,he said, urging the public to work hard towards the goal of eradicating the drug problem for the next generations.
