General Director of Environmental Protection Bureau, Hsinchu County





Director’s Message:


      During past years working for government, I have dedicated my efforts to Environmental Protection Administration in different functions, including water protection, toxic substrate control, solid waste control and fund management board. These diverse experiences were so valuable that I got some opportunities to participate the process of forming some significant policies, which made me learn very fast. I have realized that “Environmental Protection” is not simply a term of integrated science, it’s more like a combination of all the stakeholders’ wishes and economic developments, what we call as ”public policies”. Except for water protection, toxic substrate control and waste control, environmental issue has merged with global trends, for examples, elimination of carbon footprint and environmental education, and transformed into the concept of “green economics”. This concept is also a feedback of financial crisis, green economics provides an efficient solution for those countries suffered. Implementing the “green economic” policy also recalls the policy from the head of Hsinchu County, offering more job opportunities healthily and building a brand-new technology city.

      In the past, compared with other counties’ government, Hsinchu County was short of the resources and financial support. As a result, it was difficult to fully implement the policy and face all the challenges in environmental protection. As the participants in environmental protection issue, we have no right to be pessimistic, though there might be so many challenges and obstacles that we have to struggle in the future. Being the director of Environmental Protection Bureau in Hsinchu County, I will fight for the support from all possibilities. It is a life-time mission for me rather than just a job, providing a better environment for future generations and truly carrying out the practice of sustainable living. In the future, I will try my best to strive toward the goal with my biggest sincerity and patient. Hope I can get the supports, advices and even criticisms from you, not only to make Hsinchu County a better place but also to pass on the sustainable living concept to next generation.
