Addressing media persons on the inaugural ceremony, TAITRA executive director Raymond Chen commented, “This is the first time that Taiwan Expo is being held in India. We at Taiwan Excellence have always put our best foot forward to support the Government of India in various path-breaking initiatives like Make in India, Digital India and Skill India. By participating in the India edition of Taiwan Expo, we are trying to bring about a synergy between Taiwanese and Indian companies. We will network with other stakeholders and explore ways of collaborating with them through the expo.”

Considered to be a major facilitator in developing Taiwan’s bilateral trade relations with its neighboring countries, Taiwan Expo was conceived as a result of the implementation of Taiwan’s new Southbound Policy to create mutually beneficial partnerships with its southern neighbors. Besides showcasing Taiwanese products and services, the expo serves as a platform for Taiwanese and Indian companies to further their cooperation. The pavilion has been popular with the visitors as it seeks the country’s culture of technological innovation and cutting edge design. It also provides an appropriate platform to strengthen bilateral trade and economic relations. This year, its pivotal role in enhancing Taiwan’s business relations with its neighbours will also be experienced in India.

Taiwan Expo is being held from 17 to 19 May at Pragati Maidan Hall.
