THE PATH TO SUSTAINABILITY

Under the influence of globalization of the modern world, cities often play a key role in the local areas, improving the competitiveness and sustainability of the region. The development of Taipei City lies not in the scale of urban construction, but in inclusiveness, diversity and emphasis on living standard, environmental protection and gender equality. Moreover, Taipei City aims to create a quality life and build the sustainable development foundation of “Engagement of Environmental Regeneration and Resource Circulation”, “Promotion of Social Security and Sharing Society”, and “Smart Growth of Economy and Technology”.
