Location:   SIN2, entrance 2.3, Altes AKH, Campus, Spitalgasse 2




One major reason of Mr. Han Kuo-yu 〈韓國瑜〉's victory over the Kaohsiung City Mayoral election last November is his South-South policy, which aims at expanding Kaohsiung's economic relations with provinces in southern China and countries in Southeast Asia. This talk will explore the programs and advantages of Mr. Han's South-South Cooperation policy. Mr. Han of KMT party was the winner in a city that has been governed by the DPP and is supposed to be a DPP stronghold for decades. However, with his South-South policy, Mr. Han takes up the major DPP „Southbound Policy“ that is supposed to be a means against Taiwan's economic reliance and dependency on Mainland China.
