The EU is a global leader in promoting renewable energy and the largest investor in Taiwan's offshore wind energy sector while Taiwan has set ambitious targets to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions and increase its green energy production. In addition, Taiwan's advanced manufacturing sector, particularly the electronics and semiconductor industry, presents an ideal opportunity for future collaboration between the EU and Taiwan by leveraging the EU's strength in and Taiwan's expertise in semiconductor manufacturing.
At this event, our guest speaker will highlight how the solid foundation and shared values make the EU and Taiwan ideal collaborators for the future development of green energy, the circular economy, eco-design and advanced manufacturing in both the EU and Taiwan.
