Taichung City, Taiwan (2012)
Saturday, August 25, 2012

The roots of the city of Taichung City go back to 1897, when it was founded as the capital of what was then Taiwan Province.  But in another sense, Taichung City was born on Christmas Day in 2010, when the modern city was merged with the surrounding county to create a municipality of 2.65 million people spread across 2,214 square kilometres (850 sq. mi.).  The disparities – between service and manufacturing, urban and rural – were a challenge to the very idea of the merger, which sought to create a metropolitan area ready for global competition.  The new Taichung certainly had the potential.  It was the only city on the island at the intersection of four transport systems: seaport, airport, rail and road.  Under its dynamic Mayor, Chih-Chiang (Jason) Hu, the city leadership set out to realize the potential they saw in Taichung – a potential that could only be realized if all the economic, social and cultural pieces of the puzzle fit snugly into place.
