Kaohsiung | Marine council to be headquartered in Kaohsiung

Marine council to be headquartered in Kaohsiung

The Council of Marine Affairs, to be established next month, is to be housed in Kaohsiung’s Software Technology Park, the Cabinet said.

The council, which is to oversee the offices of marine conservation and research, as well as the Coast Guard Administration, would be the first central government department in Kaohsiung.

The council is to rent the space for four years at a cost of NT$79.9 million (US$2.74 million), said a senior official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Asked whether the council would seek to purchase its own office space, the official said that while the decision would require further planning, the government would likely purchase an office building if more central government departments move to the city.

While the coast guard office would remain in Taipei, council officials, conservationists and researchers would be stationed at the Kaohsiung office, the official said, adding that the three groups would work together as a single department.

The office is to be in the building that houses Hon Hai Precision Industry Co’s research and development facilities, the official said.

The lease was signed last month and renovations are under way, the official said.

The location was chosen because the Ministry of Science and Technology has a marine technology research center in the city, Democratic Progressive Party Legislator Lai Jui-lung (賴瑞隆) said.

Since the responsibilities of the new council are to overlap with those of the center, the government hopes to merge the two to increase their efficiency, he added.

Meanwhile, preparations for the committee’s establishment are being handled mostly by the coast guard, although its responsibilities would go far beyond those traditionally handled by the coast guard, sources said.

Ocean Affairs Council to be inaugurated in Kaohsiung April 28


2018/04/10 22:38:23

April 10 (CNA) The planned Ocean Affairs Council (OAC) under the Executive Yuan will be inaugurated April 28 in Kaohsiung, to be headed by Hwung Hwung-Hweng (黃煌煇), who currently serves as chairman of the Aviation Safety Council, Cabinet spokesman Hsu Kuo-yung (徐國勇) said Tuesday.

Hsu also revealed that the council's two deputies will be Lee Chung-wei (李仲威), who now heads the Coast Guard Administration (CGA), and Chen Yang-yih (陳陽益), incumbent vice president of National Sun Yat-sen University.

In accordance with the Organization Act of OCA, the soon-to-be established Cabinet-level council will have three subordinate agencies -- the CGA, the Ocean Conservation Administration and the National Ocean Research Institute, Hsu said.

The main mission of the OAC will be to integrate the planning, coordination and implementation of marine-related policies, including affairs related to coast guard activities, marine conservation and marine research, according to the Organization Act.

Upon its establishment, the OCA will be the first central government agency to be headquartered in the southern port city.
