 To vitalize the commercial regions of the New Taipei City’s Yonghe District, the Yonghe District Office cooperated with nearby department stores and the Lehua Night Market vendors to host 2013 New Taipei City’s Yonghe District Happy Shopping Time with a variety of promotions and discounts. The New Taipei City Mayor Eric Chu attended this event and highly praised that the Yonghe district is the best place for eating and having fun because it not only had all kinds of delicious food, but also had a Korean street full of exotic romance. He hoped that citizens could fully enjoy this event, and that could enhance the development of the Yonghe District.

Chu said that he met with Ms. Judy May Chu, the member of US congress, in the city hall not long ago, and she said she used to visit the Yonghe District when she was the Mayor of the City of Monterey Park in California.
