Introduction to the Medium-term Public Construction Plan of Taipei City Government

At the time of this globalization era, the life patterns and problems in urban areas have become an important factor in the decision-making process at a national level. Many contemporary phenomena observed in different societies receive more attention than the national issues as intercity competition has become more present than ever. Taipei City has grown to become a modern capital with an international vision resulting from each mayor’s effort throughout the years. The continuous main objective is to transform Taipei City into a liveable and sustainable city. 
In order to stay competitive, Taipei must strive to enhance its urban developments. In this respect, the importance of infrastructure cannot be ignored. Taipei City considers the following as the key areas for infrastructure improvements, i.e. water treatment, facilitation of public transport and development of industrial parks. 
The Medium-term Public Construction Plan is a guideline for Taipei City’s infrastructure development with a renewal interval of every four years. This Plan is the essential action plan originated from the vision stated in the Strategy Map of Taipei City Government and the core services at each agency. A public construction defined in this Plan is with a minimum construction period of two years. It can be a public construction that provides a city-wide service beneficial to the city’s strategic development, or a system deployment of the same service nature in the whole city. 
The forecast for project budgets in this Plan is divided into two kinds of category, i.e. existing and new ones, in order to help Taipei City with the evaluation of future financial need. As this Plan serves as a guideline, the annual forecast budget is only an estimate. The Research, Development and Evaluation Commission (RDEC) of Taipei City Government still needs to conduct an annual re-evaluation and on-site verification for the projects in this Plan.
