Taoyuan: Towards an “Airport Economics” Smart City

A delegation comprised of Taoyuan City Government officials, China Airlines Chairman Ho Nuan-hsuan, and Taoyuan International Airport Corporation President and CEO Shiau Deng-ke, led by Taoyuan Mayor Cheng Wen-tsan, visited the United States from July 4 to July 15 on the “2017 Taoyuan City Trade Delegation to the West Coast USA.”

A total of 40 meetings were held during the 10 days, including discussions with key figures in political circles, in the overseas community, and in the science and technology sectors. They visited multinational corporations, technology industries, universities, and public infrastructure facilities of special interest. During the conversations, Cheng put forward the concept of “airport economics,” where an airport drives investment and economic development, which was well-received. He also explained the importance of Taiwan’s “Asia Silicon Valley Development Plan” – one of Taiwan’s key industrial innovation initiatives – for promoting scientific and technological cooperation between Taiwan and the United States.
