Premier Lin Chuan says the Cabinet plans to boost investment in public infrastructure projects this year.


Lin, along with senior officials from key departments, was giving a briefing at the Legislature on Friday. The focus, Lin said, will be to accelerate the construction of public infrastructure projects.

“On top of boosting investment in state-run enterprises, we are also planning to set aside a special budget for future construction projects. These include rail transportation, water management, green energy, digital networking, and infrastructure for rural areas. The rail network will connect the island more comprehensively. [We are] pushing for a construction plan which can be completed within the next four to eight years," said Lin.


Lin also outlined the defense ministry’s plan to build indigenous fighter jets and naval vessels.
