#MOFA campaign highlights #Taiwan value as global SDG partner

| September 20, 2018

MOFA has launched an international campaign highlighting Taiwan’s desire to participate in the U.N. system and merits as a valuable partner in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. 

Unveiled ahead of the 73rd U.N. General Assembly  on 18 September, the initiative urges the global body to deliver equal treatment to Taiwan’s 23 million people and resolve the issue of the nation’s exclusion from the U.N. system; grant press accreditation to Taiwan journalists and allow unfettered access to U.N. premises for Taiwan passport holders; and include the country in SDG-related meetings, mechanisms and activities.

Foreign Minister Jaushieh Joseph Wu released an article titled ‘UN Global Goals – Taiwan Can Help’ published by media outlets in diplomatic allies Belize, Kingdom of Eswatini and St. Kitts and Nevis as well as like-minded partners such as Germany, Italy, Malaysia, the Philippines, South Korea and the U.S. The piece noted that while Taiwan is not a member of the UN, the nation has never shirked its duties as a responsible stakeholder in the international community.
