Taiwan is facing the immense challenge of making a successful transition to clean energy. Taiwan’s energy transition policy emphasizes an increase in renewable energy, which is also the goal of the EU’s 2020 Energy Strategy. The EU and Taiwan share a mutual interest in developing offshore wind energy in Taiwan. The Bureau of Standards, Metrology & Inspection (BSMI), MOEA, the Bureau of Foreign Trade (BOFT), MOEA, and European Economic and Trade Office (EETO) under the framework of European Business and Regulatory Cooperation Programme (EBRC) will co-host the “2018 EU-Taiwan Offshore Wind Power Certification Seminar” on 14 March.
Almost 70 years ago, the United Nation General Assembly adopted the "Universal Declaration of Human Rights". For the next few decades, this Declaration together with the "International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights" and the "International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights" (the two Covenants) jointly formed the bedrock of international human rights. Human rights of individuals were no longer seen as the special privileges for the few, but the fundamental rights for all. It is thus important that on this day we take stock of what we have achieved and remind ourselves of the difficulties of achieving such progress and the long road ahead to ensure the protection of human rights everywhere.
