In recent years Taiwan has also been a pioneering leader in the field of green energy and as an island, much like the UK, offshore wind has been a big focus of that push. Similarly to the UK Government, the Taiwanese Government is committed to a transition to green energy.
In this paper, the British-Taiwanese APPG highlights the significant achievements that have already been delivered. But there is scope for closer cooperation in this and other sectors too and the APPG urges the British Government to do the right thing and work closer with Taiwan on these issues, starting by extending a full invite to Taiwan to participate in the COP26 Conference in Glasgow this November.
As the offshore wind space shows, closer relations between the UK and Taiwan are beneficial for both of these island nations. Furthermore, those benefits also extend to the wider world.
