The National Palace Museum Southern Branch Project Makes A Huge Stride, Meeting the Scheduled Test Opening Date by Year-End, 2015
Release date:2013/10/31
Since taking office in Sep. 2012, the National Palace Museum (NPM) Director Fung Ming-Chu has engaged in a vigorous effort to push for the development of the Southern Branch project. Today, she made a personal visit to Chiayi to inspect the “National Palace Museum’s (NPM) Southern Branch Construction Project” and the build–operate–transfer project. Concerned with this major cultural construction project of Chiayi, Legislators Wu Yu-Jen and Weng Chong-Jun also paid a personal trip to examine the construction progress and to listen to the briefing. The legislators all expressed a high level of attention regarding the NPM Southern Branch construction progress and its influence on the future development of Southern Taiwan. The completion of the sand compaction pile, PC pile, and ground improvement works operations signified the significant progress that NPM has made in meeting the scheduled test opening date by year-end, 2015.

Director Fung indicated that the NPM Southern Branch would be a world-class Asian art and culture museum. In addition to featuring remarkable museum architecture, it would also introduce ten amazing opening exhibitions to display the NPM’s artifact collection as well as national treasures from abroad. Various innovative and high-tech technologies would be employed to showcase these masterpieces, which would certainly elevate the art and culture of the region and provide the local residents a diverse, fascinating aesthetics experience. Furthermore, by combining the NPM’s cultural and creative industry with the local industries, the NPM Southern Branch would surely induce the economic development of the region and achieve economic prosperity.

After inspecting the tying of the basic reinforcement bars and the underground pipe infrastructure project, Legislators Wu and Weng returned to the engineering office to listen to the project status report prepared by the Construction and Planning Agency of the Ministry of the Interior, who had been entrusted by the Museum to execute the construction project. They later engaged in a comprehensive analysis and encouraged the project team to overcome the difficulties they would subsequently encounter.
