MOFA thanks Formosa Club members for supporting Taiwan’s participation in COP 28

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs expressed its sincere gratitude to members of the Formosa Club for jointly calling for Taiwan’s meaningful involvement in the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change and mechanisms related to the Paris Agreement Nov. 29 in Taipei City.

With the 28th Conference of the Parties of the UNFCCC underway Nov. 30-Dec. 12 in Dubai, 169 FC members, consisting of lawmakers and representatives from 12 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean, called on UNFCCC Executive Secretary Simon Stiell to invite Taiwan to the event, according to the MOFA.

The joint letter states that Taiwan has become the 18th country to pass a policy enshrining the goal of net-zero emissions by 2050 into law. It went on to add that the government recently set up its Ministry of Environment and the Taiwan Carbon Solution Exchange, which are concrete proof of Taiwan’s staunch commitment to promoting green transition, the MOFA added.

The correspondence also mentions that the Taiwan government has been helping domestic industries meet the demands of international supply chains to facilitate both economic and environmental sustainability in alignment with global climate governance targets, the ministry said.

The MOFA reiterated that Taiwan is a responsible member of the international community that stands ready to closely collaborate with allies and like-minded partners to respond to the challenges of climate change. (POC-E)
