        Huang mentioned in her speech that she held gratitude towards everything. An emergency command center was established on January 24 right after the outbreak of COVID-19. The well-prepared resources and precautionary measures enabled the citizens to get back to normal life. This year, the household disposable income of Chiayi City is ranked 3rd among the administrative districts apart from the 6 special municipalities.

Chiayi City is also ranked 1st for healthy cities among regions apart from the 6 special municipalities and for happy cities.

There are special lectures and the Youth Festival for young people to pursue their dreams. Parks were renovated and turned into public areas for people to spend leisure time. A few policies were executed in response to the aging society. The electric buses and YouBike 2.0 made the transportation more convenient while being eco-friendly. The hotline 1999 for civic service was reinitiated in order to solve problems more efficiently. The drainage system is also bettered to prevent flood happening.

        Huang also announced that Chiayi City will host the 2021 Taiwan. It’ll be the first one in Yun-Chia-Nan area and a milestone for Chiayi City. It will get City Government to discuss with the citizens over the city management to make Chiayi City improve. The industries in Chiayi City will thus be worldwide advertised.
