Taipei, March 28 (CNA) Vice President Chen Chien-jen (陳建仁) said Tuesday that Taiwan will continue to work with foreign friends in contributing to the planet’s sustainable development and issues related to climate change.
Chen made the commitment during a meeting with a group of experts on sustainable development led by Alistair Edgar, executive director of the Academic Council on the United Nations System (ACUNS), at the Presidential Office.
The vice president thanked his guests for having worked with Taiwan’s overseas-based officials to stage seminars on important global issues and for sharing their expertise and professional knowledge with Taiwanese government officials.
Though Taiwan is in a “delicate” situation diplomatically, it has never hesitated in taking on a proper role in global projects as a responsible member of the international community, he said. [FULL STORY]
