Article Predicting Purchase Intentions for Green Buildings: The Role of Psychological Factors in the Theory
Author Chuen-Chang Lee, Yun-ling Wu, Chin-Hao Shih, Chih-Han Li, Wen-Tao Lin, Cheng Yu

This study explored the influence of perceived value, perceived quality, and perceived risk on purchase intentions for green buildings. The theory of planned behavior (TPB) was used as the theoretical foundation. A conceptual framework model was constructed by integrating three psychosocial variables, namely, perceived value, perceived quality, and perceived risk. Parameters were evaluated using linear structural equation modelling (SEM). The survey participants were adult residents of Kaohsiung City who had social experience and economic capabilities. The survey was conducted from April 15 to June 15, 2017. In total, 400 questionnaires were administered and 400 questionnaires were returned; 26 invalid responses were excluded, yielding an effective response rate of 93.5%. The empirical results indicated a significant positive influence of perceived value on purchase intentions. Perceived quality and perceived risk were found to indirectly affect purchase intentions via perceived value. Purchase intentions were significantly and positively affected by self-awareness, perceived behavioral control, and social norms. The results of this study implied that higher perceived value, self-awareness, perceived behavioral control, and social norms can increase consumers’ purchase intentions for green buildings. A comprehensive conceptual framework model integrating psychosocial variables and the TPB was found to be an important factor for the prediction of purchase intentions for green buildings.

Article The Industrial Innovation Model Green Energy Industry Shape of Taiwan Experience
Author Tai-Shan Hu, Hai-Ping Lin, Ssu-Chi Pan, Ping-Ching Chia

Based on the southern region of Taiwan has more sun exposure and a sound manufacturing industry structure, it is analyzed whether the existing industries in the southern region can undertake the green energy industry investment and drive the development of the green energy industry in the south. The "innovation" was the key of sustainable development of the industry. Analyze the connection ability of emerging industries and local industries, and become a driving force for guiding regional innovation and development. According to L.Q. and relative growth, select industrial projects that can strengthen the green energy industry's local links, and add spatial locations to identify whether the southern industrial clusters can support the development of green energy industries. The industrial projects that can strengthen the green energy industry's local links are selected through location business and relative growth. The spatial location is added to identify whether the southern industrial clusters can support the development of the green energy industry. The study found that in order to promote innovation investment in the local industry and the green energy industry, the use of DUI-STI's co-existing innovation model is more conducive to the production chain's dependence. The energy Link of innovative industries to local basic industries, while introducing new industries, it also promotes the development of existing industries into the cornerstone of the industrial regeneration cycle.

Article Policy Analysis on Spatial Spillover Effects of Serious Crime-An Application of Spatial Durbin Model
Author Chich-Ping Hu

There were significant declines in serious crime which is associated inversely with increases in gross domestic product in Taiwan over the period from 2005 to 2015. Misdemeanor policing derived from the Broken-Windows hypothesis suggested that along with the increase in arrest for minor offense, and then the increased social control in evil motivation would discourage the anti-social behaviour of individuals. This paper applies Spatial Durbin Model to estimate the serious crime affected by deterrence of anti-social events with application of spatial econometric techniques in Taiwan. This paper finds remarkable decline in serious criminal activity is attributable to improved economic condition and minor offense control.  However, both economic incentive and social control by misdemeanor policing and their spatial lag terms are important in explaining this decline. Spatial Durbin model is the best one to fit this explanation for serious crime reduction in Taiwan. Additionally, spatial spillover effect from economic incentives and minor offense deterrence is a significant factor to consider when the public policy is formulated to crime reduction.

Article Strategic planning vision and some key directions for economic breakthroughs during 2021-2025 period
Author Nguyen Viet Long

Grounded by industrialization, in 2015, Binh Duong started to deliver a Smart City Program to drive disruptive socio-economic development in the province and build preparedness for the Industry 4.0 era, and has achieved great successes to lay the first stepping stones. At the entrance of 2021-2025 period with expected booms in the science and technology industry and new business models, Binh Duong envisions to drive further breakthroughs and transform itself to a higher level of development. However, the COVID 19 outbreak in early 2020 and resulting global economic downturns are creating new challenges, requiring Binh Duong to revisit its core leading industries for more focused investment. The paper will analyze the strategic planning vision and some key development directions in the next phase under the Binh Duong Smart City Program, in order to meet the pressing needs of the industry to tackle challenges, create stronger momentum of economic breakthroughs and lead the province to a new height.
