Day-Yang Liu, Chung-Yi Fang, Pei-Leen Liu

In the course of discussion and assessment of the establishment of IR in Matsu Island, a number of stakeholders and numerous complicated economic, social, and environmental factors are involved.

This platform can be used for observing the dynamic change of the influence under different policies, and as recommendation for policy making.
