Taiwan to host Asian anti-nuclear forum in 2019 

http://focustaiwan.tw/news/asoc/201811200015.aspx   Taipei, Nov. 20 (CNA) Taiwan is set to host the annual No Nuke Asia Forum (NNAF) next year, the Taiwan Environmental Protection Union (TEPU) said Tuesday.

Founded in 1993, the NNAF is an annual gathering that brings together experts and academics from various anti-nuclear groups across Asia to discuss and share their visions on how to counter nuclear energy.

Taiwan’s upcoming referendum on the government’s policy of phasing out nuclear power in Taiwan by 2025 has been a topic of popular discussion at this year’s NNAF, which was held in the Philippines Nov. 11-15, the TEPU said.

TEPU Chairman Liu Chih-chien (劉志堅), who attended the event, said Taiwan’s efforts to phase out nuclear energy also garnered widespread support from members from Japan, South Korea, Vietnam and India.

During the forum, the union also came to share Taiwan’s past experiences, including a referendum that helped stop the ongoing construction of the country’s fourth nuclear plant in 2014, Liu said.

According to the TEPU, the 26th Asian anti-nuclear forum is scheduled to be held toward the end of 2019.
