Date: May 25th, 2019

In collaboration with the US EPA, the Taiwan EPA’s Bureau of Environmental Inspection conducted a five-day training workshop from 5/20 to 5/24 on environmental impact assessment, extended producer’s responsibility, and waste permitting and management for the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment of Vietnam. The goal of the workshop was to share Taiwan’s expertise and experience with Vietnam and allow Taiwan to understand Vietnam’s current situation regarding the workshop topics. During the opening ceremony, Taiwan EPA Minister Chang Tzi-Chin greeted the delegation from the US EPA and Vietnam MONRE, and warmly welcomed the group. In addition to the training, the entire delegation also visited a waste incineration plant and EIA sites to learn about Taiwan’s experiences firsthand.
