Under the spatial scale dialectics between global and local governments, the role of urban governments has been shifting from resistance, control and manipulation toward negotiation, coordination and management. Therefore, the government is transforming from a commander into a coordinator. There is so called good governance which features characteristics, including transparent decision-making process, utility and accountability. Taiwan, as one of development-oriented countries in East Asia, is known for its local governments, including 7 cities and 18 counties. Empowered by devolution, city/county government plays an active role in terms of economic booster, interurban competition and urban spectacle. This paper explores the municipal foreign diplomatic relationship between 217 sister cities and 25 cities and counties all over Taiwan during 1961 to 2010 in an attempt to investigate the scale jumping of devolution within global and local governance. In addition, this essay attempts to illuminate strategies employed by local governments as well as its symbolic meanings.
