Independent Bookstores | Overview
- Chinese Title: 「獨立書店圓夢計畫」
To help highlight the importance of independent bookstores and their role in strengthening the cultural fabric of society, the Ministry of Culture has launched a subsidy program to help young people open their own bookstores in their hometowns; 33 alone were established in 2013.
In addition to providing funding for independent bookstore owners to start shop, an advisory group comprised of business and financial professionals also provide consultations to help improve the distinguishing features and quality of such establishments.
