Taiwan, China Urged to Study Cross-Strait Natural Gas Pipelines
From Focus Taiwan
Taiwan and China should work together to explore the possibility of building natural gas pipelines across the Taiwan Strait, the vice chairman of Taiwan’s Chinatrust Financial Holding Co. said Sunday at a bilateral forum in Nanning, China.
Such pipelines will allow Taiwan easier access to natural gas, Hsueh Hsiang-chuan said at the ninth Cross-Strait Economic, Trade and Culture Forum, a key platform for communication between Taiwan and China’s ruling parties, in Guangxi Province.
Hsueh, a former secretary-general of the Executive Yuan, urged the two sides to conduct joint research on natural gas pipelines as part of the effort to address common issues such as stable energy supply, reasonable energy prices and targets for carbon reduction.
Hsueh also worked at the National Security Council and has been a senior advisor to Taiwan’s ruling party Kuomintang (KMT) since 2000.
