Tsai calls on party members to push for gov’t infrastructure plan

President Tsai Ing-wen has called on members of her Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) to help push the government's infrastructure plan forward.

Tsai issued her call Wednesday at a meeting of the DPP's Central Standing Committee where she was also speaking in her capacity as DPP chairperson.

The government's infrastructure plan is currently stuck in the Legislature where it is being blocked by a boycott from the opposition KMT.

During her remarks to the committee meeting, Tsai called the infrastructure plan an investment in the next generation. She said that as the party that the electorate chose to govern Taiwan, the DPP has a responsibility to bring progress to the nation. Tsai called on all members of the Cabinet to take action to push the infrastructure plan forward.
