 ●  Apple Daily, 2021-4-10, editorial: The bane of Taiwan- backward infrastructures, e.g., no early-warning system for railway train, pollution in stream, air, dam, reservoir deposition, bad bus structure...  UDN, CTN, Apple Daily editorial、2021-4-3: train carrying 490 derails, about 50 dead 200 injured /  Serious transportation accidents repeat -  all are SOP ignoring man-made disasters, no one treats seriously the warning message behind each accident, The gov. is good at risk management and focus-shifting, instead of preventive management in advance, all these lead to tragedy again and again. The event is just a tip of a iceberg, Taiwan should establish a culture respecting human life.  Taiwan railway bureau got rigid grading system  and reform failure.    click for full details Taiwan transportation !

               

China Times, editorial, 2021-4-25: "Ractopamine pig mystery" / Taiwan has imported pork and pig offal in total 1800 ton from the US since Jan. 2021,  however, in all the markets, there's no any pork and pig offal marked  e "imported from USA".  Another mysterious thing is Agriculture government (Council of Agriculture) says 70% of them were already used for meat processing, but Health government (Ministry Health & welfare) says 70% of them were still in the refrigerating chamber. chinatimes.com/opinion/20210424003140-262101?chdtv

But settling in Taiwan is not without its drawbacks ...Foreign professionals run up against a protectionist mentality in e-commerce segments ... Personal connections matter, too, in breaking into a market ... Taiwan’s English fluency lags Hong Kong and Singapore ... Taiwan regularly ranks as one of the most densely populated places on Earth, meaning ... outside easily overpower the sound of one’s own TV set ...Locals fret about the looming threat of China...  https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2020/11/21/taiwans-relatively-covid-free-life-attracts-skilled-expats/6322040002/

    

...............   ABC Radio National, Australia, 2-27-2020:  What's most apparent when visiting Taiwan is how ordinary it is — ordinary in the sense of normal, everyday, functional
                      ps: In Taiwan, the houses/buildings are expensive "property", instead of "architecture arts",  the cars are for transportation or for business, always square shape with boring color, black, gray, etc,  hard to see a sports-car,
convertible or a VW bug with clockwork on its butt ... unlike those with great vitality in the US !
...............  Associated Press, 11-23-2020 says Taiwanese business may not be ethical ... mix the U.S. pork ( Ractopamine pork banned by 150+ countries ) with Taiwan pork Apple Daily, editorial, 1-5-2021:  chaos !! Taiwanese are not confident in gov. control strategy ―  "Taiwan pork only" seal.  e.g., famous Taiwan cuisine restaurant " Formosa Chang (鬍鬚張)" is questioned to mark the official seal but partly use foreign pork.
...............   Liberty Times, 6-15-2020, editorial: Taiwanese always love traveling abroad rather than domestically.  Majority of foreign tourists to Taiwan came from China, but most of their consumption-profits are monopolized by Chinese-funded and Chinese-associated businesses.  All these have made Taiwan's tourism industry weak and sluggish-demanded.  It is undeniable Taiwan tourism needs to be improved the following items :

                        (1)  the prices of accommodation, catering and transportation are generally high but the quality is not good, shaping the stereotype that  traveling domestically are not as good as sightseeing abroad.
                        (2)  the tour often lacks
humanistic & cultural connotations, ethnic groups' traditions, characteristics and lifestyles.  Although each area has its own old streets and night markets, it is  difficult to distinguish one from another.  In short, Taiwan lacks in-depth and exquisite tourism.
                        (3)  the government has not given importance to tourism industry,  "Insufficient resource integration capacity, insufficient investment, and insufficient marketing" .
...............  Apple Daily, 2021-3-12:  Popular tourists-site Shi-lin night market "miserable street scene" , more bosses than customers, in that “expensive”, "smoke smells", "too homogeneous & unattractive", "delivery platforms are emerging", ... most ever stores closed in recent 30 yrs.
...............●  The China Times 7-15-2020, former minister of Transportation govt.  陳建宇 : Hotels and travel business were "starved" too long for CovID-19, therefore raise the price a lot to "revenge exploit" customers.  advice :
                        (1)  establishing DMO (
目的地行銷暨管理組織 like Japan and Euro.);
                        (2)  quality first,
implement Market segmentation  Precision marketing
                        (3) 
Recreating a new tourists-friendly environment,  starts from tourist night market, till now the govt. only work on  innovation/renovation of night market's toilet room, the rest is far behind the standard of  int'l metro...  full text:  https://www.chinatimes.com/opinion/20200714004912-262105?chdtv  
...............●  Apple Daily, 7-14-2020 editorial: Why do Taiwanese love travel overseas instead of domestically ?  The price is high and quality varies, therefore Taiwanese prefer Japan, Korea and South-East Asia.  Price cutting competition and  low-cost airline  exclude In-depth and exquisite tourism from tour list .  Govt.'s economic relief package only works on avoiding close-down instead of tourism enterprise transformation.
