Peer Review on Fossil Fuel Subsidy Reforms in Chinese Taipei

Chinese Taipei has participated in the fossil fuel subsidy reform peer review process led by the APEC Energy Working Group (EWG) in 2016, and is the fourth volunteer member economy to do so since 2014, following Peru (in 2014), New Zealand (2015), and the Philippines (2015). This peer review report is the culmination of the activities conducted under the APEC EWG. The report provides useful information on the Chinese Taipei economy and energy use, as well as descriptions of the subsidies chosen for the peer review process and the panel’s findings and recommendations on potential inefficiencies for these subsidies. The report is available to download on the APEC website.
