Draft bill of Hakka Basic Law reviewed

A draft bill of the Hakka Basic Law was reviewed by a Legislative Yuan committee Monday, paving the way for the zoning of special Hakka areas in which the unique Hakka language and culture can be conserved and promoted systematically.
Welcoming the review of the draft bill, Council for Hakka Affairs (CHA) Minister Huang Yu-cheng noted that Article 6 - the centerpiece of the bill - stipulates that the CHA will zone cities and townships as Hakka areas so long as at least 33 percent of the population there are of Hakka descent. "The Hakka dialect will also be designated as the official language in those areas," Huang said.
