Kaohsiung Mayor Han Kuo-yu (韓國瑜) yesterday said that if elected president, he would encourage the approximately 50 million overseas Chinese worldwide to invest in Taiwan.
Their investment would help young people’s start-ups and make Taiwan “the second Israel,” the Chinese Nationalist Party’s (KMT) presidential candidate told a Taipei forum on start-ups and innovation.
Given Taiwan’s small domestic market of 23 million people, young people often encounter difficulties finding investors during the seed stage, Han said.
At the event, Han also sang a self-adapted version of the military song I Am Going to War Now (我現在要出征), which he sang in October when announcing that he would go on a nearly three-month leave for his election campaign.
“I am going to make money now, I have a wife and two kids to feed,” he sang.
Asked after the event about his low support rating among younger people, Han said that if young people learn more about him, they would understand that he cares more about their development than anyone else.
“You do not have to vote for Han Kuo-yu, but you must look at his platform,” he said, adding that no harm would come from comparing candidates’ policy plans.
