City Councilor Calls for Stimulus Vouchers|疫情衝擊百業蕭條 北市議員籲速發振興券
Due to COVID-19, Taipei's shopping districts and night market sales are plummeting. Taipei City Councilor Wang Hong-wei held a press conference and called on the city government to provide assistance as soon as possible. In response, relevant bureaus of the city government said that they have already activated four major rescue measures and will continue to make adjustments.
During a groundbreaking ceremony on the 27th, Taipei City Mayor Ko Wen-je was asked whether the postponement of President Tsai Ing-wen's inauguration ceremony had anything to do with him. Ko declined comment.
Mayor, has the presidential inauguration ceremony been canceled because of you? Mayor, one city councilor says you dug a hole for the president to jump into. Come, come, come.
Retail revenues in Taipei have fallen 30 to 50 percent due to COVID-19, with Ximending particularly hard hit. Night markets and hotels are also suffering, and the number of companies applying to implement unpaid leave is even higher now than it was during the financial crisis.
Our major shopping districts -- the number of people taking the MRT has fallen to a 10-year low. I called this press conference today on behalf of our tourism, travel, service, food and beverage and retail industries.
We plan to use the central government's stimulus vouchers to expand relevant stimulus activates.
The Taipei City Office of Commerce says rent, tax, interest rate and stimulus measures have been activated to help businesses make it through these hard times and adjustments will be made whenever necessary. It has also set up an industry service window for assistance. However, Kuomintang Taipei City Councilor Wang Hong-wei says "stimulus vouchers" are needed now, not four months from now, to stimulate Taipei's economy.
