    Magistrate Hsu Yao-Chang has accumulated long-term administrative experience in the local government and extensive personal connections in the industry. The Magistrate actively pays annual visits to domestic high-quality manufacturers (KYEC continues to set up a third plant by investing NT$1 billion in Miaoli’s Tongluo Science Park, which generated 1,000 employment opportunities) after taking office. He also visited China with his team to promote a homecoming trend among Taiwanese entrepreneurs, and his investments in Miaoli has successfully attracted two major semiconductor manufacturers (TSMC has introduced advanced packaging and testing technologies, and continued its investments of NT$300 billion which generated 2,500 employment opportunities in Miaoli; Powerchip has expanded its investments, acquired NSP’s Zhunan FAB, and invested 278 billion in Miaoli’s Tongluo Science Park, which generated 2,700 employment opportunities) and two Taian Leisure Hot Spring Villas (invited Taiwanese entrepreneurs to invest in Taian Wenshui Tangyuan Hot Spring Villa that covers an area of 5 hectares, with total investment of NT$1 billion, generating more than 90 employment opportunities, while Taian Shanhejing Co., Ltd. invested NT$1 billion in Taian Hot Spring Villas that covers an area of 5 hectares, generating 92 employment opportunities.)
