In April 2013, Taiwan and Japan concluded a fisheries agreement. The Taiwanese government also negotiated the South China Sea Peace Initiative, which resolved a 40-year disagreement with the Philippines over fisheries. Taiwan sent a 100-member delegation to Paris in December 2015 for the crucial UN conference. The conference is expected to conclude with a new climate agreement, which would replace the expiring 1997 Kyoto Protocol. Taiwan`s Minister of the Environmental Protection Agency led the delegation for the first time, held bilateral talks and organized a side event with allies. Taiwan also participated in a parliamentary roundtable on green growth initiatives and the French president visited Taiwan`s booth, which showed technological innovations. .
