A number of public infrastructure projects are in the planning phase as one of the government's major focuses for 2017.
President Tsai Ing-wen and Premier Lin Chuan have repeatedly expressed intent to expand public infrastructure projects this year. Discussions between the Cabinet and various departments have proposed construction projects in four categories. These are rail transportation, water management, green energy, and digital networking.
The head of the Public Construction Commission, Wu Hong-mo, said a fifth category may be added to stimulate investment.
There are currently four major categories, and a fifth is certainly possible. We are still in discussion with different departments on the numerous projects," said Wu. "[We believe] that to accelerate the whole process, we need to prioritize the projects that are key to the development of major industries.
Wu said that the Cabinet is also working out the budget for the projects, with more exact numbers to be announced around the end of the month.
