TAIPEI (TVBS News) — Vice President Lai Ching-te (賴清德) visited China Steel Corporation (中國鋼鐵公司) in Kaohsiung Friday (April 26), aiming to delve into the company's ambitious strides toward net-zero carbon emissions.

This move underscores the firm's pivotal role in spearheading industry innovation and its substantial contributions to Taiwan's economic prowess. Lai's engagement with China Steel Corporation's initiatives reflects a broader governmental push for sustainable development and international competitiveness in the face of evolving global market demands.

 

During his visit, Lai was briefed by General Manager Wang Hsi-Chin (王錫欽) on the operational insights and future blueprints of China Steel Corporation. This dialogue highlighted the critical need for synergy between the government and the industrial sector to foster national advancement.

Lai lauded the company for its trailblazing efforts in the steel industry, which propels numerous downstream industries and generates an industry value exceeding NT$1 trillion and provides employment for over 100,000 individuals. This, Lai emphasized, positions China Steel Corporation as a cornerstone of Taiwan's industrial framework.

Lai underscored the urgency of aligning with the 2050 net-zero emission target to maintain the competitiveness of Taiwanese products on the global stage. He pointed out the importance of adhering to international carbon emission standards and enhancing related industries, a commitment he plans to prioritize after his inauguration on May 20.
 

Lai stressed the collective responsibility of central and local governments, alongside industries, to embark on comprehensive strategies for carbon emission reduction. He highlighted the necessity for businesses to adapt to future carbon fees and innovate manufacturing processes to ensure a seamless transition to net-zero emissions.

In his concluding remarks, Lai stated, "We must fulfill our responsibility to the global village," signaling a clear mandate for Taiwan to reduce its carbon footprint to safeguard its international market share. This commitment to the 2050 net-zero goal reflects a strategic vision for Taiwan's sustainable development and economic resilience in the global arena.

Lai's visit to China Steel Corporation showcases the government's support for industry leaders in environmental stewardship and sets a precedent for other enterprises to follow suit in the collective journey toward a greener future.
