Taipei Youth Affairs Department’s Organizational Regulations Draft Passes Review by Council’s Legislative Committee

    The Legislative Committee of the Taipei Council passed the organizational regulations draft of the Taipei Youth Affairs Department today (January 31). The Taipei City Government thanked the members of the Legislative Committee for their recommendations regarding the establishment of this new department. Their feedback will further enhance plans for organizing the department. Next, the draft will be reviewed by the Council during its regular session. Taipei’s Research, Development, and Evaluation Commission (RDEC) will continue to dialogue with the Council on the matter and work to facilitate the department’s establishment as soon as possible to provide Taipei youth with one-stop services.

    According to a poll conducted by the RDEC, nearly 80% of Taipei residents support the formation of the Taipei Youth Department. This department will allow for the more effective aggregation of city government resources, the inclusion of opinions from city youth, and the provision of innovative and diverse services for young people in terms of their learning, career, and life in general. The department will also attract youth both in Taiwan and from abroad to come to Taipei to develop themselves, which will enhance the city’s vitality and growth.

    The RDEC once again thanks the Legislative Committee for its valuable feedback. Recommendations from the committee will be included in the department’s career planning and assessment to provide hardworking youth in Taipei with better policies and services.
