Kaohsiung Mayor Visits Bay Area

Chen Chu, the mayor of Kaohsiung, was in the Bay Area betweem February 21-23 leading a delegation to promote business relations with Silicon Valley, as a means of heading off the economic downtown. She was welcomed by San Jose City Mayor Chuck Reed on Monday, February 23 and later toured Sun Microsystems and Cisco Systems Inc. During her visit, she emphasized Kaohsiung’s dual attractions - cheaper real-estate and preferential tax benefits.

Later that evening, Mayor Chen signed letters of intent with two Californian companies, AnanSpec Incorporated and Atman Hospitality Group. The former will invest in Poly Peptide facilities while the latter will build an eco-friendly hotel in Kaohsiung.
