Mayor Attends Videogame, Tech Application Showcase
Mayor Ko Wen-je attended the “Fun 3C Experience at Bade Commercial District” event in the afternoon of May 6.During his address, Ko noted that the purpose of the event is to encourage the general development of the Bade Commercial District.According to the mayor, ITC industry is an area where Taiwanese companies show outstanding performances. They also account for nearly half of the market values of local stocks, not to mention its attraction for young people as possible career options.The event saw the participation of several city agencies, stores and members of the Bade IT Commercial District, Guanghua Digital Plaza, Syntrend Mall, Huashan Culture Park, TTL Taipei Beer Factory, and National Taipei University of Technology. These entities form the “Greater Guanghua Commercial District.”While the city government hopes to model these entities after Tokyo’s Akihabara, the mayor pointed out that perhaps the city government can come up with a way to make it even better and more creative than its counterpart in Japan. He hopes that Commissioner Lin of the Department of Economic Development and TCOOC Director Tsai can contribute their expertise to realize such visions.
