Environmental protection organizations protested the government's perceived sacrifice of the environmental impact assessment (EIA) system in favor of investors at a press conference in front of the Executive Yuan yesterday.
The Green Party Taiwan (GPT), one of the participating organizations, said “inappropriate industrial policies are the main issue causing the downfall of the economy. Instead, the government intends to lower the standards of environmental protection to attract foreign capital to invest in Taiwanese businesses.”
