Sustainable Use

Sustainable Use for Future

Sustainable use, future function After the end of the Taichung International Flora Expo, most of the park facilities will be preserved and maintained. Circular ecology and a variety of technical skills will be used to carry out an ongoing combined eco-agricultural development. Through an inter-industry cooperation development model, the agricultural product value chain will be connected through a horizontal alliance and professional counseling, to effectively use rich resources such as local products, experience, knowledge and traditional culture in rural areas. In the hopes that the future of the Waipu Expo Site will adopt a compound business model that retains an educational purpose to expand the agricultural food/non-staple food production industry and the tourism industry.
