Throughout the year the people of Taiwan enjoy freedom and human rights, and on National Day we celebrate the founding of our nation and take pride in its vibrant democracy. The holiday is also a time to reaffirm commitments with regional and international partners to support peace, uphold stability and share prosperity.
National Day celebrates our prosperity. We use cutting-edge technology and resources well under the Six Core Strategic Industries initiative in line with U.N. Sustainable Development Goals. Commerce and trade are all thriving, as despite the pandemic, our economic growth in 2022 was 2.45%. Our renewable energy source power generation volume, including water, wind and solar, continues to grow and is poised to reach 15.5 percent by 2025.
