1 Taiwans Strategy for Green Trade Promotion Wan-li Wang, Ph.D. Deputy Representative, Taipei Representative Office in the EU and Belgium October 07, 2011
2 Taiwans Efforts Taiwan has actively promoted 1. the use of renewable and clean energy, and 2. the need to reduce carbon emissions In line with the policies of other industrialized nations, Taiwan is preparing itself for the impact of climate change and switching to renewable sources of energy for the good of the environment
3 Sustainable Energy Policy At present, renewable energy accounts for 8.2% of Taiwans installed electricity generation capacity, and will increase to 16% by 2030 Taiwan has initiated a sustainable energy policy aimed at increasing the green energy content and reducing carbon emissions In 2010, the total revenue of the green energy industry reached 13.24b USD, and Taiwan ranked No.6 worldwide and No.2 in Asia in terms of green technology competitiveness Taiwan targets to reduce carbon emission to year 2005 level in 2020, and further reduce to year 2000 level in 2025. The share of low carbon energy in electricity generation will increase to 55% by 2025 In order to achieve this goal, we need a strong green energy industry to support a low-carbon economy

15 Sharing the Experiences with Partners Taiwans overseas technical missions are introducing agricultural waste treatment technologies to various partner countries These efforts are helping our partners to develop sustainably by converting waste products and limiting pollution produced during agricultural development
16 Projects in Partner Counties Honduras and Nicaragua: biogas application projects Nauru: produce organic fertilizers from agricultural waste Guatemala: organic composting and carbon reduction Panama: pesticide residue testing system Tuvalu: waste treatment Six Asia-Pacific partner countries: clean energy (solar- and wind-powered sources of energy) Swaziland: providing sustainable source of drinking water for rural communities Nicaragua: promoting geographic information systems as a land-planning tool Palau, Tuvalu and Swaziland: dispatching environmental protection volunteers Panama, Nauru and St. Kitts and Nevis: sustainable development of water resources, and renewable energies such as solar power, wind power and biomass generation
17 Projects in St. Kitts and Nevis 1. sustainable development of water resources, and renewable energies such as solar power, wind power and biomass generation 2. Solar panel for government buildings 3. agrotourism demonstration farm cooperation project (combine green energy, farm and tourism)
18 Taiwan needs more international participation Taiwans exclusion from the UNFCCC carbon reduction mechanisms and Kyoto mechanisms has denied its enterprises from accessing the UN Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) designed to help lower reduction costs. We look forward to your continued support as we seek to participate in the activities and mechanisms of the UNFCCC, the Kyoto Protocol, as well as in all post-2012 agreements.
19 conclusion Green trade is a solution for establishing a green economy, and a driving force for achieving green growth Natural disasters have reminded us of the importance dealing with the global greenhouse effect and reducing carbon emissions as well as fostering green growth in Taiwan The goal of green trade growth rate is 20% in 2011 Assistance for SMEs in expanding global markets through Green Trade Promotion are: 1. Enhancing competitiveness through capacity building resources, thus preparing SMEs to respond to global green trends 2. Help SMEs to seize new green business opportunities through efficient promotion & marketing campaigns
