Sep 25, 2018 Entertainment Comments Off on Kaohsiung looks to share experience, knowledge at cities forum
Taipei, Sept. 25 (CNA) Acting Kaohsiung Mayor Hsu Li-ming (???) said Tuesday at the opening of the Global Harbor Cities Forum that his city is looking forward to sharing knowledge and experience with other international cities during the three-day event.
As a vital industrial center and home to one of the world's busiest commercial ports, Kaohsiung has long played an important role in the nation's economic development, Hsu said.
Once known as a port city synonymous with heavy industry and polluted waterways, Kaohsiung has in recent years cleaned up and transformed itself into a lively place filled with green spaces, art centers and entertainment venues, he said.
Amid the current wave of globalization, the acting mayor said, harbor cities are constantly faced with new challenges, and he expressed hope that participating representatives can come up with solutions to the problems and tap new opportunities through exchanges of views at the forum.
Some 65 cities in 25 countries around the world have sent representatives to the forum.
Kaohsiung initiated the forum in 2016 as a platform for representatives from the world's foremost harbor cities to discuss the challenges and opportunities for harbor cities.
