高雄市長韓國瑜在美國哈佛談到台灣未來命運要靠20字,「國防靠美國、科技靠日本、市場靠大陸、努力靠自己」。

TAIPEI (The China Post) — In light of Kaohsiung Mayor Han Guo-yu’s recent speech at Harvard University in which he summarized his hopes for the future development of Taiwan — to rely on the U.S. on defense, Japan on technology, China on markets, and ourselves on pushing through the work, Foxconn founder Terry Gou shared some thoughts on Facebook.

對此,鴻海董事長郭台銘今(13)日晚間在臉書粉絲專頁發文表示,他同意韓市長的20字框架,但有些建議,他覺得是「國防靠和平,市場靠競爭,技術靠研發,命運靠自己」。

The business tycoon said on April 13 that he agrees with Han’s summary, yet he hopes to provide a little comment. “Taiwan is better to improve the defense with peace and stability, shape the market with competitions, enhance technology through research and development, and change its future totally by hard work,” he wrote.

郭董說,看到了韓市長在哈佛20字對於台灣未來的命運,他個人對這20字有些建議。

He said that the short summary made by Han was on point, yet he also has his version in terms of Taiwan’s future outlook.

「我同意韓市長的20字框架」,但有不同的看法,他覺得是「國防靠和平,市場靠競爭,技術靠研發,命運靠自己」。

“I agreed with Han’s 20-word statement,” Gou said. Still, he believes that Taiwan should “improve the defense with peace and stability, shape the market with competitions, enhance technology through research and development, and change its future totally by hard work.”

郭董還提到,舊時有成語「東食西宿」,這說起好笑,但也可以給大家一點反省;中華民國的命運掌握在自己的手上,國防不是升高戰備可以解決,市場要依實力去競爭才能長久,全球化的壓力下發展重平衡,技術發展一定要有自己的底氣。

Gou also gave his reflection with a Chinese idiom “Eat easterly and sleep westerly,” pointing out that such an approach may not be the long-term solution to success. He said people should work hard like Taiwan’s future totally depended on it, especially seeing hostility as a drawback to national defense and markets stopping to thrive without competitions. He added that an all-around balance is needed under globalization and respective development in technology.

他說,要怎麼收穫先要怎麼栽,大家想要什麼樣的未來,掌握在自己手裹。

The main point comes as he also stressed that citizens have the control of Taiwan’s very own future. “As you sow, so will you reap,” he said.

最後,郭董也強調,正向的討論有助於明辨中華民國發展的真正方法。

Last but not least, Gou put in a hashtag that “it is good to foster Taiwan’s development through positive discussions.”
