INTERVIEW: Problems drive innovation, Dutch representative says

The Netherlands Trade and Investment Office (NTIO) has for decades devoted itself to boosting bilateral ties between Taiwanese and Dutch institutions in various fields, from agriculture to renewable energy. NTIO Representative Guy Wittich discussed how the Netherlands is moving toward a circular economy and strengthening its relations with Taiwan in an interview with ‘Taipei Times’ staff reporter Kuo Chia-erh in Taipei on Jan. 17

Taipei Times (TT): How is the Netherlands turning circular economy from a nice idea into reality?

Guy Wittich: The Dutch government has introduced a nationwide program with the goal of reaching a full circular economy in 2050. We hope to reduce the consumption of primary raw materials by 50 percent in 2030 and then eventually by 100 percent in 2050.
