In General Discussion
The current mayor of Kaohsiung, Han Guoyu, from the election period as a candidate until today as the local head of a municipality directly under the central government, has never placed the city of "Kaohsiung" in a position to be well-built, and has not paid attention to cultural policies. It is the best example of Mayor Han's indifference to municipal administration. This article will take stock of Han Kuo-yu's actual governance and actions regarding cultural policy and construction in the one and a half years after taking office, and verify the doubts that Kaohsiung has gradually returned to the stigma of "cultural desert" under the leadership of Mayor Han. The revitalization of shopping and procurement flow standard Korean Yu attended the publicity meeting as usual Photo Credit: WebMD At the mayoral debate two years ago, Han Kuo-yu's political views did not mention cultural policy at all. Faced with his opponent Chen Qimai's questioning about his specific thoughts on cultural policy and the operation of Weiwuying Art Center, Han Kuo-yu only responded, "I will definitely hire you. A cultural secretary with very good English skills ." However, the truth is that nearly half a year after Mayor Han took office, there are still many bureau chiefs vacant in Kaohsiung City, and the Cultural Bureau is no exception. After more than half a year, it was finally determined that Lin Siling, Wedding Photo Editing a former political minister of the Ministry of Education and a professor at the Teaching and Research Institute of Fu University, was finally appointed. Lin Siling's study abroad experience was able to meet the English proficiency standard of Mayor Han. No experience in promoting cultural development policies. As soon as the news of the director candidate came out, his suitability made people in the Kaohsiung arts and culture circles quite worried . After Mayor Han took office at the end of 2018, the director of culture was left without a window for half a year, and the promotion of cultural policy and other related affairs was naturally delayed with the selection of director. However, in the one year since the Cultural Director took office, the Korean city government team not only failed to take active cultural policy actions, but also cancelled many cultural promotion activities that were originally unique to Kaohsiung. In the face of multiple doubts from the outside world, the Cultural Affairs Bureau responded with a passive fire-fighting response, seemingly not caring about the locality of Kaohsiung culture passing away bit by bit. The following will introduce the three disappeared Kaohsiung arts and cultural activities, to verify the contempt and neglect of cultural policy by Han Guoyu and his city government team, and the operational methods that play a role in it.
