Mayor Returns from World Cities Summit in Singapore

Wrapping up his trip to Singapore, Mayor Ko Wen-je arrived at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport in the evening of July 11.
During the press conference at the airport, the mayor noted that his most important gain from the trip is to let the world notice Taiwan, as well as using this opportunity to conduct bilateral exchange with Taipei’s sister cities and promote the upcoming 2017 Summer Univesiade in Taipei.
Ko remarked that the purpose of his visit was to take part in the World Cities Summit organized by Singapore’s government. In the interest of boosting Taiwan’s international profile, he also gave several speeches during his visit.
With attendance spanning 110 mayors and heads of cities and municipalities around the world, Ko took the opportunity to meet the leaders of Taipei’s sister, partner, and friendship cities, including Daegu (South Korea), George Town (Malaysia), Panama City (Panama), and Yokohama (Japan).
The mayor stressed that he presented both an invitation and a Universiade gift set to each of the mayors from sister cities he met with, welcoming them to attend the Universiade in Taipei next year.
