TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – The first Asia-Pacific Wind Energy Expo opened at the Kaohsiung Exhibition Center on Wednesday, and will run through Friday, March 15.

The Expo, which is reportedly the second largest wind power exhibition in the Asia-Pacific region has brought together companies and wind market specialists from over 11 countries, who are all engaged in “building Taiwan’s supply chain” for a future based on renewable energy sources.

The Expo showcases company display booths, and also hosts seminars, business discussions and an employment fair for those seeking a career in the wind energy industry.

At the opening ceremony of the Asia-Pacific Wind Energy Expo, Taiwan’s Deputy Minister of Economic Affairs, Tseng Wen-sheng (曾文生), emphasized the importance of green energy and foreign investment for Taiwan’s future, reports Liberty Times.

Over 30 company representatives and industry insiders will give talks over the three days of the expo, covering four major themes of turbine manufacturing, wind farm operation, ocean equipment engineering, and peripheral services and industries.

Recognizing the critical role that renewable energy will play in Taiwan’s economy over the upcoming years, Dep. Minister Tseng also expressed his hope that future exhibitions in Kaohsiung might be held for various green energy industries.
