This question was asked by Fraddy and Clark long time ago.
What does BOT stand for?
即Build (興建), Operate (營運), Transfer (移轉) ，意指政府規劃工程交由民間投資興建並經營一段時間後，再移轉給政府。
BOT is the abbreviation of Build, Operate, and Transfer. BOT means a public construction planned by the government, built, and operated by privately owned corporations for a certain agreed-period, then transferred back to the government.
