2019 South & Southeast Asia-Air Improvements in the Region meeting held in Taiwan
Date: July 29- August 2, 2019
Under the New Southbound Policy, the Taiwan EPA and the US EPA held the 2019 South & Southeast Asia-Air Improvements in the Region (SSEA-AIR) symposium in Taipei from July 29 to August 2. More than 30 experts and government officials from six countries – Indonesia, Mongolia, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Vietnam – and two international organizations, the Asia Development Bank and the Asian Environmental Compliance and Enforcement Network (AECEN), were invited to share their experiences on air pollution management.
The symposium participants not only thoroughly exchanged their views on air quality strategies, but also focused on key issues for Southeast Asian countries, such as funding sources for improving air quality, management of mobile source air pollution, and industrial air pollution control equipment. Furthermore, a site visit was conducted to give participants a better first hand understanding of Taiwan’s various technical achievements and efforts in air pollution control.
