Feel What it's Like to be a Shipbuilder on New Website

Press Release
Tuesday, February 12, 2013

The National Archives Administration (NAA) of Taiwan launch a website featuring aspects of the country's shipbuilding history.

Since 2004, the NAA has digitized the historical files of eight state-run enterprises that were set up in the 1960s and 1970s but were later privatized, including Taiwan Chung Hsing Paper Co., Ltd. , Kaohsiung Ammonium Sulfate Corp., Taiwan Veterans Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd., Taiwan Salt Industrial, Chung Hwa Telecom, Taiwan Machinery Manufacturing, and Tang Iron Works.

Through these historical files readers can get an understanding of one of Taiwan's ten major development projects, the 1970s Kaohsiung Shipyard development, as well as information about the most expensive ship and the largest ship ever built in Taiwan's shipbuilding industry.

An interactive area of the new site allows players to experience the pressure and hardship of the shipbuilding industry.
