Editorial: Airport plans are just pie-in-the-sky

At this point it sounds like there is far too much overlap between the Taipei airport and aerotropolis proposals. Lawmakers and the public should be asking questions about these projects and their feasibility and asking government officials for concrete details, not more pie-in-the-sky talk — before land is expropriated, before people are forced to relocate to make way for these schemes, before the first concrete is poured.

Development projects are needed to help the economy grow, but they must really create the employment and business opportunities promised and not just be soundbites for politicians.
