The Bamboo as a Substitute for Plastic Initiative, initially proposed by China and INBAR at the High-level Dialogue on Global Development in June 2022, is now building serious momentum. In November 2022, at the Opening Ceremony of the Second Bamboo and Rattan Congress (BARC 2022) as well as INBAR’s 25th anniversary celebration, INBAR and the Government of China formally launched the initiative. Jiang Zehui, Co-Chair of INBAR Board of Trustees, introduced the plan as part of her keynote address. The formal text of the Initiative expands upon five key areas for implementing the Initiative: 1) Formulate supportive policies; 2) Promote technological innovation; 3) Encourage scientific research; 4) Promote market expansion; and 5) Enhance publicity.
