Taiwan, China Should Cooperate on Environment, Party Head Says
Taiwan and China should cooperate on energy conservation and environmental protection, the Chairman of the island’s ruling party said in a speech today.
“Establishment of a cooperation mechanism, a common response to the Kyoto Protocol, a system to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and new-energy industry cooperation, I believe can contribute sustainable development of the cross-Strait environment,” Wu Poh-hsiung, chairman of Taiwan’s ruling Kuomintang, said in Changhsa, China, according to a transcript of the speech posted on the party’s Web site.
Wu is in China for the fifth round of annual talks that have helped ease nearly 60 years of tension between the two sides. The two-day summit will focus on development of cultural and educational links between Taiwan and China.
