An estimated 200 people from all walks of life participated in this event, including Mr. Wu Ying-Shih, Director of National Taxation Bureau of Kaohsiung, some journalists and others from some business associations.

In his remarks, Kaohsiung Customs Director Chow Shun-Zan said that Customs is the gatekeeper of a country, and its missions are to provide transparent and facilitated clearance services, carry out preventive enforcement as well as levy duties and taxes. Furthermore, he emphasized that Customs should maintain close relationship with the society and communities, and that’s why this mountain clean-up hiking activity was held. Right after Director Chow’s brief remarks, the hiking was kicked off from Long Quan Temple(龍泉寺)at the foot of the hill.

Throughout the hiking, participants picked up trashes along the way to help maintain ecological balance. In addition, Kaohsiung Customs also conducted a quiz contest during the activity to help the general public know more about the Customs. As this mountain hiking activity is very meaningful, Kaohsiung Customs expressed that it would organize similar activities or seminars from time to time in the future.
