As connectivity and smart technologies are transforming life in Taiwan’s cities, New Taipei is proactively integrating them into the city infrastructure for an improved urban environment and convenience. Understanding and implementing digital transformative technologies was the focus of the New Taipei City delegation’s visit to CECI on October 8, 2020.

Impressed by CECI’s presentations, Deputy Mayor Chen praised its accomplishments and efforts to apply new technologies in engineering and construction and remain Taiwan’s leader and pioneer in this field.
