The Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MOTC) yesterday rolled out 40 governmentprojects worth more than NT$100 billion (US$3.28 billion) at its annual Investment Solicitation Convention.
The convention has drawn about 250 companies from across the nation and overseas, the ministry said.
Minister of Transportation and Communications Lin Chia-lung (林佳龍) told the opening ceremony that the ministry had launched investment projects worth NT$170 million in the past three years, for which it was ranked No. 1 by the Ministry of Finance in terms of attracting investments from the private sector.
The convention is different this year, because not only would it showcase infrastructure projects and land development plans in airports, seaports and railway stations, it would also include projects involving the development of applications that could be used in transportation systems, Lin said.
