Welcome Message

Dear Distinguished Guests,


On behalf of Kaohsiung City, I sincerely welcome mayors, leaders and delegates from around the world to join in the 2016 Global Harbor Cities Forum. The forum is designed to bring fresh, innovative ideas to help connect harbor cities and facilitate further development and collaboration among global harbor cities.


As one of Kaohsiung's grandest projects, the “Asia New Bay” is accelerating the transformation of the city into a harbor city that will fill multiple roles and offer endless possibilities. I would like to invite you to take this opportunity to enjoy the warmth, culture and convenience of Kaohsiung.


We seek your support for our forum and look forward to your participation in 2016. Come join us in Kaohsiung to learn about the investments, urban innovation, and infrastructure that make our forward-thinking and optimistic city a center for global resources and a springboard for ventures into the global market.


Mayor of Kaohsiung Taiwan
