Intertwining of Taiwanese-German relations: Taiwan is the fifth-largest German trading partner in Asia, the bilateral trade volume is high (17.3 billion € in 2017). Germany is the largest Taiwanese trading partner in Europe.

 

Need for SDG implementation: The successful implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals depends on finding innovative solutions on a local, regional and global level. The sharing of best-practice examples and global learning clearly contributes to this goal.
