On March 3, 2022, New Taipei City Mayor Hou Yu-Ih attended Smart∞2022 Taiwan Sustainability Summit – City 4.0: Connect and Digitalize, which was jointly hosted by Siemens AG, German Institute Taipei, German Trade Office Taipei, Taiwan Institute for Sustainable Energy, and Business Today. In addition to sharing New Taipei City's digital transformation experiences gained from the Smart Flood Prevention Platform, Baogao Science and Intellectual Park, and Public Security and Transport Visualization Analysis Decision Platform, Mayor Hou emphasized that New Taipei aims to integrate Sustainable Development Goals and develop a livable smart city with adequate power and water supplies.

Taiwan Sustainability Summit, which was first held in 2013, has become a significant event among the industries, governments, and academia of Taiwan and Germany.
