Taipei to learn from Netherlands: mayor

TAIPEI--Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je said Thursday that he considers the Netherlands to be an excellent model for Taipei to learn from and plans to visit the country next year.

Shortly after winning the mayoral election in November 2014, Ko said Taipei would overtake Singapore within eight years, but changed his mind after six months in office.
