    A Word from the Minister

    A warm welcome from the Coast Guard Administration.

    Dictated by the principles of "Open access to the ocean, servicing the public, and safety assurance," the Coast Guard Administration (CGA) has posted successes in coastal waters and the pelagic zone patrols, smuggling and stowaway crackdowns, maritime rescues, natural resource conservation, and public services, since being inaugurated on January 28, 2000. These endeavors have received acclaims from many sectors.

    The CGA is committed to ensuring national maritime security, Taiwan's safety in the high seas and coastal areas, protecting the country's oceanic resources, and safeguarding the rights and interests of the people. Meanwhile, the CGA works to promote Maritime Law Enforcement, Maritime Services and Maritime Affairs with a pragmatic approach, while fulfilling central government's vision to support "maritime innovation" and "a seagoing beacon of prosperity" by virtue of "strategic seafaring management," working toward "better ecological stewardship, future sustainability, and greater prosperity."

    Taiwan, an island of enchanting scenic beauty, sits on a wealth of maritime resources. Conscientious management will ensure that this well of riches never run dry for the people of Taiwan. We want visitors to this website to better understand the Administration's organizational structure and duties. Public participation is key to the Administration's success; your input is greatly valued. We also hope to engage concerned citizens of the public to join us, and act as stewards of Formosa - our only home.

    Lee Chung-Wei, Minister,
    Coast Guard Administration, Executive Yuan
