At the conference, TAITRA’s Deputy Executive Director K. J. Cheng remarked, “We are thrilled to organise yet another edition of Taiwan Expo in India. Products and services at the Expo have been selected to reflect the most up-to-date government regulations, needs of the regional market, and patterns of consumer spending. One-on-one Business Match Meetings and other stage events are also planned to facilitate communication and cooperation between companies based in Taiwan and India. We want to keep developing the greatest platform possible to advance commercial ties between the two nations.
To further strengthen links between Taiwan and ASEAN nations like India, the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) hosts an annual show called Taiwan Expo. Taiwan Expo has grown rapidly since its beginning in 2017 to become a premier venue for Taiwanese companies to network, discover new markets, and develop strategic alliances in ASEAN, South Asia, and North America. Therefore, the Expo is regarded as the most important platform for international business transactions between ASEAN and India. As so, it exemplifies Taiwan’s unwavering dedication to developing India’s bilateral commercial ties.
Among official statistics compiled by the government of Taiwan, India ranks as the country’s number sixteen trade partner and thirteenth biggest export destination. This is an increase of 9.86% from 2021, and the total value of bilateral commerce between India and Taiwan in 2022 was $8.46 billion.
In recent years, India has established itself as a competitive alternative hub within the global supply chain framework, and the current geopolitical and economic scenario offers synergy to both India and Taiwan, opening the door to opportunities to navigate cooperation and build prosperous commercial ties between the two countries.
