To expand the scale of the southern digital technology industry cluster, The Export Processing Zone Administration (EPZA) of the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) launched the Kaohsiung Software Park Phase II development Program (Kaohsiung Software Park Phase II), and the program has been approved to implement. EPZA has planned a budget of NTD 98 million and took the lead in starting the public works. The groundbreaking ceremony for the infrastructure project of the park was held on March 07, 2022, legislator Lai, Jui-Lung and Kaohsiung City Government officials are all participated to pray for the smooth and safe completion of the project.
Yang Po-Keng, the EPZA Director-General, said that the Kaohsiung Software Park Phase II is a continuation of the key industries from Kaohsiung Software Park. Kaohsiung Software Park Phase II aims to develop information software, digital content and smart applications and other related industries and combined with the Asia New Bay Area 5GAIoT innovation Park program and the resources of various ministries and associations, providing a field for 5G AIoT R&D, testing, and application development, and jointly build an important technology industry settlement in southern Taiwan.
The base is currently part of the Xinguang Parking Lot. The infrastructure project will continue the current status of the entrance and exit of the Xinguang Parking Lot and a 20-meter L-shaped road network will be set up on the south side of the base to connect to the Kaohsiung Software Park. The Kaohsiung Software Park Phrase II adopts the plan of the separation of people and vehicles and reserves the sidewalks for the use of public transportation systems such as buses and light rail transit to pass in and out of the park. The project is entrusted by EPZA to the Construction Office of Public Works Bureau, Kaohsiung City Government to execute. The main contents of the project are asphalt concrete pavement layout and installation of drainage systems, sewage systems, broadband pipelines, sidewalks, lighting systems, and so on. The construction period is 320 calendar days and is expected to be completed in February 2023.
EPZA further stated that the follow-up development program will conduct the construction plan of the first building, which could not only strengthen the industry development of existing industry clusters but also add industrial lands to achieve the industrial cluster effects, driving the overall development of the park and increase local employment chances.
