The Taipei City Government (TCG; Chinese: 臺北市政府; pinyin: Táiběi Shì Zhèngfǔ) is the government that governs Taipei City of Taiwan. The government building is located at Taipei City Hall in Xinyi District, Taipei.


Zhongshan Hall (formerly Taihoku City Hall).

Taipei City Government was founded in October 1945 as a provincial municipality. The original city hall was located at the site of the Taihoku City Hall (modern-day Zhongshan Hall) in Zhongzheng District. In 1967, Taipei City status was upgraded to a Cabinet-level municipality. Its service thus grew much bigger with the large increase of population. Zhongshan Hall could only accommodate around 1,000 employees and many other units were scattered in various rented offices.

In order to carry the city government jobs effectively, a new Taipei City Hall was built in 1994 in Xinyi District.


Ko Wen-je, the incumbent Mayor of Taipei City.

There are 5 internal administrative branches, 22 departments, 7 offices, 4 committees, and 2 public corporations, under the head of the City, the mayor of Taipei and the vice mayor.[1]
