According to the deputy minister, his office will push for the reconstruction of old or hazardous buildings islandwide and a planned "rapid screening program" will enable both the central and local governments to pin-point (精確找出) at risk buildings. Buildings found to pose risks will undergo a seismic hazard assessment (有風險的建築物會進行地震危險評估). ---- T*Taiex The Tai-Ex closed more than 10-per cent higher in the Year of the Rooster, largely on the back of strong foreign institutional buying (外資買超) for most of the year.
