A lot of the problem happens when the agility of municipal governments exceeds that of the national government so that they are forced to set up, I don’t know, local sandboxes or things like that that doesn’t feedback to the national system, and which creates a problem when you want to interoperate across municipalities. One classic example is the Taipei municipality’s work of cashless invoicing system but for people who want to do business in both Taipei City and New Taipei City, it means that they have to learn two systems because there’s no way for them to interoperate in the New Taipei City and it’s just one bridge across… they’re actually, you know, very close.
