Reshuffle in Cabinet may form economy focused group: Hau

TAIPEI, Taiwan -- Taipei City Mayor Hau Lung-bin (郝龍斌) yesterday responded to media rumors that the Cabinet will be reshuffled after the Chinese New Year, saying that the reshuffle may focus on forming a team that specializes on economic issues in order for the government to focus on economic recovery in the new year.

Hau made the remarks while visiting the Guanghua digital plaza (光華商場), yesterday.

After being asked about a recent report that the Cabinet might be reshuffled following the Chinese New Year, Hau pointed out that in order for a Cabinet reshuffle to take place, Premier Jiang Yi-huah (江宜樺) needs to get authorization.

"Responding to recent public demands regarding improving the economic situation, a Cabinet reshuffle will focus on this problem and the Cabinet will be reorganized with an economy-specialized team in order to face this challenge," Hau further explained, saying that "this is also what citizens are expecting from the government."

Hau did not answer directly the question of whether he will be a Cabinet member in the future, only expressing that Jiang is the right person to form a new team and make efforts to improve the economy.

Guanghua Digital Plaza Celebrates the New Year

Hau made his remarks on the fifth day of the Chinese New Year, which is traditionally the day employees return to work after the long vacation. The Guanghua Digital Plaza held an activity yesterday to celebrate the first day of work following the Chinese New Year.

Hau attended the Guanghua Digital Plaza celebration yesterday and gave his blessing to the public, saying that "everyone will be wealthy soon!"

Hau also said that there are many good quality and reasonably priced digital products at the Guanghua Digital Plaza, suggesting that foreign visitors put the location on their must-visit list for Taiwan.

At the celebration, the Guanghua Digital Plaza prepared over 100 red envelops to give out, with the highest prize being a NT$20,000 coupon.
