Taipei Mayor Hau Lung-bin met with former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani at the latter's security consulting business in New York Thursday to exchange municipal administrative experiences.
During their nearly one-hour meeting, they discussed a wide range of issues, focusing primarily on crimefighting and municipal social welfare projects.
Giuliani, who served as mayor between 1994-2001, is widely lauded for his success in reducing the amount of crime in New York during his time in office.
He rose to international prominence for his inspirational handling of the aftermath of the 911 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center in 2001 and was named Time magazine's "Person of the Year" for that year.
Giuliani went on to run for the Republican Party's nomination for the 2008 presidential election and led in national polls for most of 2007 until his campaign faltered.
At Thursday's meeting, the former mayor praised Taiwan's democracy and asked Hau several questions on the current cross-Taiwan Strait situation.
Hau explained recent developments in cross-strait affairs, including an accord between the two sides on launching cross-strait weekend charter flights and opening Taiwan to more Chinese tourists from early July.
Hau arrived in New York Aug. 26 at the head of a delegation of city government officials and councilors for a five-day visit aimed at learning from the U.S. city's experience in waterfront urban development and municipal administration.
The delegation includes Taipei City Deputy Secretary-General Chen Yung-jen; Department of Urban Development Commissioner Ting Yu-chun; Emile C.J. Sheng, head of the city's Research, Development and Evaluation Commission; and city councilor Chiang Nai-shin.
Hau's itinerary includes meetings with New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, as well as visits to the city council, the police, fire and technology development departments, the 311 Citizen Service Center, the Harlem urban renewal area, and the city's famous waterfront parks, including Battery Park, Hudson River Park and Brooklyn Bridge Park.
The delegation is slated to depart New York for Taiwan Aug. 31.
