Technical exchange with Pingtung County mission, Taiwan (Oct.25, 2010: Tokyo)

Opening Address


On October 25 (Mon.), 2010, twenty government officials from Pingtung County located in the southernmost part of Taiwan came to Japan, and had an exchange of views regarding overall river development. Pingtung County has recently suffered from disasters. An enormous flood which was supposed to occur only once in fifty years occurred in September last year, and a severe typhoon occurred in September this year. Therefore, the purpose of their visit to Japan was to study case examples and technology required for promoting urban development resistant to water damage. In exchanging views, they asked questions about plans, technology and case examples of river development coupled with urban development in Japan, as well as specific adaptation measures against various phenomena due to global warming including extreme weather and rise of sea level.
