International Energy Cooperation for Stable Energy Supply
With limited natural resources, over 98% of our energy supply relies on imports. Therefore, strategies for ensuring stable energy supply are crucial. It is our core mission to develop strategies to ensure Taiwan’s energy security. Furthermore, given the considerable degree of dependence on energy imports, Taiwan actively participates in international organizations to strengthen energy cooperation with other nations and aims to contribute to global energy governance. Thus, by establishing dialogue platforms, we also aim to facilitate interaction and cooperation between Taiwan and energy exporting countries.
International and Regional Energy Negotiations
We pay utmost attention to negotiations on energy issues in the World Trade Organization (WTO), especially those concerning trade in energy products and services covered in the Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA) and the Environmental Goods Agreement (EGA). Regional negotiations, such as the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP), and the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) are also our focal points. Furthermore, in order to aggregate domestic consensus, we are devoted to promoting communication and interaction between the government, the industries, and the public. We further aspire to establish communication and coordination platforms between domestic and foreign institutes.
