The spirit of the forest
With the passage of the Kyoto Protocol, it is hard for Taiwan to exclude itself from the global trend of symbiotic international ecological environment. The Forestry Bureau and the Taiwan Forestry Research Institute are, during the process, playing the role of trend leaders, direction guides, policy formulators and innovators as well as a resource integration platform between industry and academia.
