Mayor: Four-year Vision for Taipei to be Unveiled on 100th Day in Office

Mayor Ko Wen-je expressed his gratitude to city hall staff for working for the welfare of the citizenry during the City Executive Meeting on January 27. This meeting marked the first month in office for the mayor.

According to Ko, the city government is at full throttle to realize its new vision spanning “100 Days’ Reform, 4 Years’ Leap, and 50 Years’ Future.” He emphasized the virtue of “act fast and make corrections” to propel the city forward. Ko underscored the core spirit of governance—“open government, public participation, and transparency.” He believes that a good government should weed out corruption and seek to create prosperity, as well as learning from past failures to avoid making the same mistakes again. The city government will unveil its visions for the next four years after crossing the 100-day mark of his administration, Ko stated. He also set out the objective of transforming Taipei into an even better city to live in. Speaking of recent incidents where his off-the-cuff remarks sparked controversy, the mayor noted that he will seek opportunities to attend classes on diplomatic protocol and etiquette to avoid similar faux pas in the future. To honestly face mistakes and rectify wrong deeds is an attitude he believes should be applied to both individuals and the city government.
