Chairman TAITRA in his inaugural address said, India is prime to become the economic super power of the 21st Century. The world’s 6th largest economy, India is home to vast numbers of institutions, R&D centers and tech-oriented manpower. It is advancing toward a US$5 trillion economy by 2025 and will be the world’s 3rd largest consumer market by 2025. Taiwan and India have also developed close relations in recent years, particularly with respect to trade. As of December 2017, the accumulative investment amount from Taiwan into India reached US$355 million. Similarly, our bilateral trade volume reached US$6.3. billion in 2017, making Taiwan India’s 18th largest trade partner.
At the new office opening ceremony last month, I told my Indian guests: “the banquet in India has already started”. Our response to the banquet is the Taiwan Expo. We serve our best dishes for Prime Minister Modi to deliver his Make in India, Digital India and Green India policies. Today, I have brought delicacies from Taiwan: Smart Cities, Electric Vehicles, Green Tech, Health Care, Culture & Tourism, and Lifestyle. A total of 130 Taiwanese exhibitors will showcase their latest technologies, products and solutions. I have no doubt we will prove Taiwan to be one of India’s best partners, best allies, and best friends.
This year’s ‘Taiwan Expo in India’ highlights focal points that both respond to current social and economic development and are mutually beneficial. Taiwan Smart City Pavilion is based on three themes: Smart Education, Smart Home and Smart Transportation, and will demonstrate the strength of Taiwanese smart city solutions.
Taiwan Green Products Pavilion is showcasing Taiwanese companies that may provide India with solutions to help manage environmental issues derived from population growth and economic development. Among other issues, these companies promote waste regeneration and lead to a green lifestyle.
Taiwan EV Alliance Pavilion will include renowned EV companies to display Taiwan’s EV technological advantages and supply chain components.
Taiwan Healthcare Pavilion will present the specialties and strengths of Taiwan’s smart medical industry, including medical services, aesthetic medicine, clinical tests, technologies and water purifiers and equipment that have integrated the Internet of Things (IoT) into their products. Taiwan’s latest testing equipment will also be provided on-site and will be available to experience, free of charge.
we will demonstrate Taiwan’s superior lifestyle products. With increasing demands for consumer goods, we will showcase Taiwan’s high-quality agriculture and food products, high-end sports and leisure equipment, high-quality textile fabrics, highly-customized food machinery, and superior Taiwanese design in consumer household products.
