Mission

The Hakka Affairs Council, the world's only central-government authority in charge of Hakka affairs, carries on the mission of revitalizing Hakka language and culture, takes the challenge of building a Hakka identity full of happiness, confidence and dignity, and owns the task of making itself a global Hakka cultural research and exchange center. With the purposes of promoting cooperation and exchanges of Hakka culture at home and abroad, preserving the landscape of Hakka settlements with Hakka cultural features, creating a Hakka cultural atmosphere and providing people with chances to approach Hakka culture, the Hakka Affairs Council has set up two Hakka cultural parks, namely Liudui Park in the south and Tongluo Park in the north, to better utilize available local resources and promote the nearby sightseeing industry and economic development.

 

For the establishment of these two Hakka cultural parks, the Hakka Affairs Council first set up the "Taiwan Hakka Culture Development Center Preparatory Office" in 2004, which has been renamed as the "Hakka Culture Development Center” since January 1, 2012 in line with the Government restructuring program. With an area of 20 hectares in Pingtung County, the Liudui Park has been open to the public since October 22, 2011 as a window to demonstrate Hakka village culture and support local industries and sightseeing tours. Meanwhile, positioned as a global exchange and research center for Hakka culture and industries, the Miaoli Park, with an area of 4.32 hectares located in Tongluo Township, Miaoli County, has been officially opened since May 12, 2012.

 

It is hoped that these two national Hakka cultural parks can demonstrate to the world the “hard-neck” Hakka spirit, connect the tourism resources of Hakka villages, integrate Hakka characteristic industries, and improve Hakka vitality
