The Bureau of Foreign Trade (MOEA), Taiwan External Trade Development Council, Thai-Taiwan Business Association and Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau (TCEB) are jointly hosting the Taiwan Expo 2018 at the Bangkok International Trade and Exhibition Centre (Bitec) from August 30 to September 1.

On the theme “Let’s Tie Together”, the three-day fair is divided into seven zones – Smart City, Green Tech, Health Care, Culture, Talents & Tourism, Agricultural Tech and Good Living – all of which offer visitors the opportunity to discover a wide range of smart products with state-of-the-art technology and innovations from 210 exhibitors. Visitors also get a chance to win souvenirs and two round-trip tickets from Bangkok to Taiwan. 

“We aim to strengthen relations between Taiwan and the Asean countries. In particular, Thailand has a good relationship with Taiwan and it sees a huge potential for business and consumer exposure to new technology and innovations. We hope the expo will make people’s everyday life more convenient and pleasant,” said Felix HL Chiu, executive director of industry marketing department, Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA).

First launched in 2017, the Taiwan Expo has already expanded to Indonesia, Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia, and India and also provides parallel business meetings and industry forums in order to encourage B2B interaction and cultural exchange as well as welfare activities.

“Taiwan Expo 2018 will be a bridge between Thai and Taiwanese investors to exchange views on business and trade opportunities through business matchmaking and industry forums, such as the Taiwan Excellence Smart Transportation Forum, the Taiwan Smart Machinery Forum and the Taiwan Digital Commerce & Startups Forum,” said Shu-Tien Liu, president of Thai-Taiwan Business Association.
