The 2006 Environment Ministerial Meeting opened yesterday, with environment ministers from seven Central American countries and Environmental Protection Administration officials discussing various opportunities to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The two-day forum will end today with a declaration signed by Taiwan and the seven nations. Vice Premier Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) said at the opening ceremony that even though Taiwan is not a signatory to the Kyoto Treaty because of politics, it will join the international community in reducing greenhouse gases. "Balancing the environment, the economy and society is the key to a nation's sustainable development," she said.
