Taiwan, US, UK, Australia stage GCTF energy transition workshop in Malaysia

A workshop was held under the Global Cooperation and Training Framework by Taiwan, the U.S., U.K. and Australia May 2 in Kuala Lumpur to share best practice in energy transition to combat climate change, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The one-day event was organized by the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Malaysia in collaboration with the U.S. Embassy, British High Commission and Australian High Commission. It was the second GCTF-affiliated workshop staged in the New Southbound Policy partner country.
High-profile participants included Phoebe Yeh, head of TECO in Malaysia, and her U.S. counterpart Edgard Kagan and U.K. counterpart Ailsa Terry, as well as Mohamad Razif bin Abdul Mubin, deputy secretary general of Malaysia’s Ministry of Energy Transition and Water Transformation.
The MOFA said the workshop involved around 70 experts, officials and private sector representatives from the five countries and addressed critical climate change challenges, facilitated in-depth deliberations to explore innovative solutions and shared their respective sustainable development experiences. It also served as a platform to introduce Taiwan’s advances in offshore wind power development and insights into future renewable energy trends and policy initiatives.
Launched in 2015 by Taiwan and the U.S., GCTF has become an important platform for facilitating discussion of solutions to global issues. The initiative was later joined by Japan and Australia, and affiliated events have been held outside the founding countries since 2021. (SFC-E)
