2010-2011 English Services Emblem Program: 25 Lukang businesses receive Gold and Silver Certification
Translated by Linda Chu
The latest businesses to be certified under the 2010-2011 English Services Emblem program have just been announced. Nationally, a total of 83 businesses were awarded with gold certifications, while another 1,406 received silver certification.
Among these, two gold-certified and 23 silver-certified businesses are located in Lukang and were specially recognized by the local Lukang government in an awards ceremony on the morning of Wednesday, Oct. 20 at the Lukang Arts Museum. At the ceremony, the Changhua County Magistrate Zhuo Bo-yuan and Lukang Mayor Wang Hui-mei presented medals to the recipients.
These businesses, now part of the English Services Emblem program, not only received trophies and certificates, but will also be able to display a special sticker on their storefronts which informs foreigners that this is a place that provides English-speaking services. Regardless of the certification level, all members of this program have been recognized for customer service, communication skills and bilingual website information. This means that these establishments are a large part of helping make foreign visitors' time in Lukang enjoyable, worthwhile experiences.
