Under the banner of 'The World's Taichung,' Taichung City has integrated itself with the global community, and thanks to the active approach it has taken to the creation of an 'intelligent city,' this year Taichung once more distinguished itself when it was selected as one of the 'Top 7 Intelligent Communities of 2013.' From April 18-19, Louis A. Zacharilla, one of the founders of the Intelligent Community Forum (ICF), made a 2-day visit to Taichung. In addition to sharing his views and experiences of promoting intelligent cities around the globe with members of various fields, he was also able to witness the results of Taichung's efforts to actively combine industrial, governmental and academic resources (covering areas such as broadband, the training of a 'knowledge workforce,' digital content, and advocating innovation and marketing) in the creation of an intelligent city.
The recognition of Taichung City by an international organization such as the ICF and its selection as one of the 'Top 7 Intelligent Communities of 2013' is all down to the hard work of members of industry, government and academia, to whom the city is extremely grateful. This year the theme of the ICF has emphasized 'innovation and employment.' Taichung City is committed to the construction of a diverse digital infrastructure and improving the application of its ICT capability, as it actively creates a favorable investment environment.
