Pollution controls not in cross-strait weather pact

TAIPEI -- An agreement on meteorological cooperation that Taiwan and China are expected to sign on Thursday will not cover air pollution control, an issue of growing public concern in Taiwan, cross-strait officials said Wednesday.

That area of expertise falls under the Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) instead of the Central Weather Bureau, the sole Taiwanese government agency involved in the cross-strait cooperation that will be finalized during the latest round of high-level talks, according to Taiwan's Straits Exchange Foundation (SEF).

“The issue (of air pollution control) is not part of the weather bureau's responsibilities,” SEF Deputy Chairman Chang Hsien-yao said after Wednesday's preparatory meeting.
