President Tsai Ing-wen said Thursday that Taiwan has made great efforts
towards implementing the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. That’s despite Taiwan being excluded from membership of the UN.
The president was speaking at an international forum organized by Radio Taiwan International and the Association for International Broadcasting (AIB) on sustainable development in the Asia-Pacific region.
“Our belief is very simple. The earth is not divided into “you” and “me.” If only Taiwan is sustainable, this is not sustainable. At the same time, a sustainability that excludes Taiwan is not true sustainability for the planet. Taiwan is firmly proceeding down this road. I want to thank everyone for their support in making Taiwan [an agent] for global sustainable development, and helping Taiwan to make a greater contribution,” said Tsai. [FULL STORY]
