Taiwan's government has launched the Forward-looking Infrastructure Development Program designed to meet Taiwan's development needs for the next generation, and among its components is a railway infrastructure plan to strengthen the nation's rail systems in line with green traffic and transportation trends. As such, half of the program budget NT$882.49 billion (US$29.24 billion) will be earmarked for 38 railway projects in five major areas in Taiwan to expend the nation's rail network—including main trunk lines, inter-city services and intra-city rail—to support Taiwan's growth for the next 30 years.
