Nearly 60 percent satisfied with Kaohsiung mayor’s team: survey

A survey released by Kaohsiung City government Wednesday showed that nearly 60 percent of respondents are satisfied with the work of Mayor Han Kuo-yu's administrative team.

The findings of the survey were presented on the 100th day of Han's term as mayor of the southern port city, after his election in the local government elections on Nov. 24 last year.

The survey showed that 58.9 percent were satisfied with the work of Han's team, while 61.3 percent were satisfied with the mayor's efforts so far, and 76 percent are proud to be Kaohsiung residents.

In response to the 58.9 percent support for his team, Han said he was not too concerned but will use it as a reference as he looks for ways to make improvements.

This year, Kaohsiung will launch an all-out effort to make the city the richest in Taiwan by developing the economy and tourism, Han pledged.

Further elaborating, the mayor said the focus should be on the boost in exports of Kaohsiung's agricultural and fish products by as much as NT$9.39 billion (US$304.74 million) he has already secured.

A total of 2,018 valid samples were collected for the survey, which had a margin of error of plus or minus 2.19 percentage points.
