The China Post - - LOCAL -

Pres­i­dent Ma Ying-jeou ( ) made an in­spec­tion tour of Tai­wan Taoyuan In­ter­na­tional Air­port Satur­day.

Ma went to ob­serve the air­port’s se­cu­rity in­spec­tion mea­sures, im­mi­gra­tion auto-clear­ance sys­tem, pass­port in­spec­tion coun­ters, run­way con­struc­tion work, and the train­ing of drug de­tec­tor dogs. He also vis­ited a li­brary, duty-free shops and a busi­ness cen­ter within the re­stricted zone.

Ma said more and more coun­tries around the world are giv­ing Tai­wan na­tion­als visa waiver treat­ment, while Tai­wan’s over­all tourism per­for­mance is also very good.

As the aware­ness of the scenic beauty of Tai­wan has been spread by word of mouth among in­ter- na­tional tourists, more and more peo­ple are be­ing at­tracted to Tai­wan, he said.

He said Tai­wan should not only make tourists happy but also make them feel safe and com­fort­able.

Tai­wan’s tourism in­dus­try should work to­ward “in­creas­ing in­vest­ment, pro­vid­ing qual­ity and cre­at­ing value,” he said, adding that if air­port ser­vices are im­proved, half of the ef­fort is done.

He said the devel­op­ment of the air­port still has a long way to go and that he hopes Tai­wan will be­come an avi­a­tion cen­ter in Asia and even in the world in the fu­ture.

The pres­i­dent said he is quite sat­is­fied with the present devel­op­ment of the air­port but said there is “def­i­nitely still room for im­prove­ment.”
