The City of Kaohsiung has great deal of economic development and public policy potential that is addressed by the Policy Group. Most of the work in this section centers around the concept of the Kaohsiung Free Economic Demonstration Zone, which is currently being planned by both the city government and the central government of Taiwan. The policy group learned about some of the main goals and visions of the Free Economic Zones (FEZ) after meeting with local officials from the Bureaus of Urban Development and Economic Development. The primary goals outlined in a presentation about the future of FEZs in Taiwan include creating employment, attracting investment, and enhancing industrial competitiveness and efficiency. The government intends to achieve these goals by joining free trade agreements and promoting economic liberalization through a relaxation of business and trade regulations.
