The reform of Taiwan’s central government (focusing on the Executive Yuan) is already underway. Coordinating units need to be established between the central and local governments. This paper discusses whether the structure of local governments also needs to be overhauled immediately in order to facilitate government reform.
What kinds of problems could arise from the changes in the coordinating units linking the central and local governments? What are the possible types of such linking units? What needs to be done to minimize the costs of government reform? This paper seeks to provide answers to these questions for local governments’ reference.
