35 Outstanding Youth Farmers Finish Training, Forming a Boost for Creativity in Taoyuan.



Cheng Wen-Tsan, Mayor of Taoyuan City, attended the 2020 7th Taoyuan City Youth Farming Guidance Program. Mayor Cheng congratulated the 35 trainees for successfully finishing the fourth-month training course and farming practice missions, being right around the corner of starting their own business. The sign-up for the 8th Youth Farming Guidance Program has already started and it ends on January 29, 2021. We welcome more outstanding youth farmers along with their partners to form a boost for creativity in Taoyuan.



Mayor Cheng mentioned, considering farming requires passing on experience and implementation of creative thinking, Taoyuan City has been proactive in promoting the Youth Farming Guidance Program after being upgraded to a special municipality. The program adopts the system of master and apprentice, leading youth partners who have aspirations to dedicate themselves in the realm of farming to become familiar with professional domains including “Farming Basic Series Training”, “Farming Practice”, “Guidance for Managing Farming Business and Starting a Business” during the four months of training. Trainees can receive living allowances of NTD$30,000 per month during training, hoping to reduce some financial burden for them. Moreover, to encourage trainees to utilize what they learn and start a business, whoever passes the business starting program examination will receive a material and equipment purchase fee of NTD$200,000 at most.



Mayor Cheng pointed out, the Taoyuan City Youth Farming Guidance Program has nurtured 237 outstanding youth farmers since the start of the program. There are more and more children of farmers who select the occupation of farming, providing more vitality for the development of agriculture in Taoyuan. Mayor Cheng said, Taoyuan is an important base of agriculture innovation in Northern Taiwan. We excel at rice, tea, flowers, vegetables, fruits, grains, live stocks, and even management of agritourism areas. It is highly competitive even on a scale of the national market and our farming business is considered compact and powerful. He also encourages outstanding youth farmers to give each other assistance in the future and exchange experiences. The City Government will continue to support the Youth Farming Guidance Program and assist youth farmers to improve on product development, design of packaging, and other issues, hoping to provide consumers with high-quality and special agricultural products.
