1. The old military camp in Hutoushan, Taoyuan, transformed into a smart innovation park
(1) The hub  used to be a military hospital for 17 years from 1981 to 1997. Then,  it was used by the Coast Guard Administration and the District Prosecutor’s Office for 13 years from 2004 to 2016. After 2016, the hub was closed and idle.
(2) In 2016, the city government began to seek subsidies from the central government. In cooperation with the “Asia-Silicon Valley Project”, the city government obtained about US$3 million in subsidies from the central government and about US$2 million from the city government, in total  about US$5 million, and embarked on  the first phase of the park renovation. The plan is to build an innovation hub with the goal of IoT information security and car-linked intelligent driving, and to retain the old environmental texture as much as possible.
(3) The first phase of the park was officially opened on June 18, 2018. Since its opening, there have been more than 300 domestic and foreign visiting activities and 32 countries visited. 

2. Actively promote the second phase of the Hub
(1) The city government continues to seek funding from the central government to renovate the second phase of the hub. The exterior of the second phase has been improved and completed. There are still 3 buildings under renovation, including the reception service center and the landscape cafe. It is scheduled to be completed and opened in October this year. The total area of ​​the hub will be nearly 5 hectares.
(2) National Taipei University of Science and Technology will also be stationed in October this year, and various research projects will be launched, which will promote the cooperation and development of industry, government and academia.

3. The hub is also a large urban park
(1) The hub was originally a closed country-owned land with overgrown weeds. After sorting out, except for the testing lane, the rest of the space is released as much as possible for citizens to rest and use. It is like a broad-scale park for citizens to have a chilltime.
(2) The city government will continue to strive for the promotion and the development of the park, taking into account the development of innovative industries and the leisure needs of citizens.
