TAIPEI, Taiwan — Premier Lin Chuan (林全) and his spokesman on Tuesday rebutted
claims that the government’s newly announced infrastructure plan had plagiarized proposals made by the preceding Ma Ying-jeou administration.
Lin defended the plan, known as the “Forward-looking Infrastructure Development Plan” (前瞻基礎建設計畫), against criticism from the Kuomintang (KMT) at the Executive Yuan on Tuesday, saying that it was different from former President Ma’s i-Taiwan 12 Projects (愛臺十二建設) and that there was no need for the comparisons.
“Some (of the projects) are new, while some of the projects were there originally,” Lin stated, adding that there would, of course, be overlaps when it came to national infrastructure development plans. [FULL STORY]
