TAIPEI, Taiwan — President Tsai Ing-wen made her first public remarks on a new government infrastructure plan on Tuesday, saying it was foundational to the island’s economic development for the next 20 years and that it was not a partisan issue.
Tsai made the remarks during a meeting with overseas Chinese community representatives in Asia at the Presidential Office, saying that the projects were vital to Taiwan’s industrial upgrading and national competitiveness. She is scheduled to visit two sites in Democratic Progressive Party-controlled Taoyuan City later in the day to promote the plan.
“We have to create the conditions favorable for a better Taiwan for the next generation,” Tsai said, emphasizing that “this improvement in the quality of life is for Taiwan and all the people of Taiwan.” [FULL STORY]
