President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) yesterday promised to provide central government resources to
the “regional united governance” initiative at a “consensus camp” of leaders of the nation’s three central counties and Taichung.
Leaders and high-ranking officials from Taichung, and Changhua, Nantou and Miaoli counties met in Nantou along with the president.
In her address, Tsai said the camp meant a great deal to her, as the “model of regional governance” has been one of her main policies since 2014 and a crucial component of the new administration’s governance.
“The [central Taiwan] governance platform was a pledge made by the Democratic Progressive Party [DPP] during the 2014 elections, and I was happy to see its establishment by Taichung Mayor Lin Chia-lung (林佳龍) and Changhua County Commissioner Wei Ming-ku (魏明谷),” she said. [FULL STORY]
