Taiwanese politician and mayor of Kaohsiung Daniel Han Kuo-yu wants to see Hongkongerssettling in the port city in the island's south.
Among his plans to start achieving that goal once the Covid-19 threat is beaten back is by setting up a "Hong Kong Village" in Kaohsiung (population 2.77 million).
Han talked of his plans at a district meeting yesterday, saying attracting Hongkongers is part of a broader effort to promote Kaohsiung and to see it "grow by leaps and bounds." It is already Taiwan's No 2 metropolis
Incentives to attract Hong Kong immigrants, Han says, include offering bilingual education for children – a program to be offered in 48 city schools. [FULL STORY]
