Founder talks cleantech in Taiwan
New Resource founder and Vice Chair Peter Liu visited Taiwan in August at the invitation of the U.S. State Department to speak with government and business leaders about cleantech opportunities. “They are very receptive to the need for solutions to climate change,” says Liu, who gave several speeches and met with high-ranking officials as well as CEOs and trade organization heads. “They were very interested in how we viewed this issue as an economic opportunity.” See the China Post’s report on the visit.
