Technology as Vaccines for Business @ WCIT 2020

Taiwan Excellence exhibition is here again in Malaysia,
but in an online 3D virtual reality form this year!

Do you remember how impressive the innovations of Taiwan were last year during the Taiwan Excellence Hi-Tech Week 2019

This year, Taiwan Excellence will join the World Congress on IT (WCIT) from 18 Nov - 20 Nov 2020 and showcase 22 life-enriching smart products from 14 leading hi-tech companies in a bid to foster stronger business opportunities. Malaysia, being the host of WCIT 2020 themed “The Gateway to Southeast Asia” will be hosting a full-featured online exhibition due to the ongoing Covid-19 global pandemic.

To fully demonstrate the innovative solutions of Taiwan's ICT technology, a 3D Smart Taiwan Virtual Reality Pavilion is built using a 360-degree panoramic technology. Here we get to virtually meet 37 outstanding Taiwanese manufacturers in various fields, including 14 Taiwan Excellence awarded-winning brands who jointly present 4 major areas: Contactless Economy, Smart Living, Smart Retail, and Startup. There will also be B2B matching areas and online forums to create international business opportunities for Taiwanese businesses. 

As part of this prestigious event, Mr. James C.F. Huang, Chairman of Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA), has given an online keynote speech on the topic “Beyond COVID: Technology as Vaccines for Business”.

Beyond COVID-19: Technology as Vaccines for Business

It is an inspiring and valuable talk, especially for start-ups or SMEs. He has discussed how technology works as a "vaccine" for businesses to sustain, grow and immunise themselves from the global hit of pandemic. Look at how many businesses are struggling out there; Covid-19 has shown us how vulnerable our global ecosystem can be. How do we embrace the new normal and find new opportunities for growth? The answer is here: TECHNOLOGY

While we are waiting for a medical vaccine to protect our health, we can't rest on our laurels to wait for our business to recover naturally. So it is important to create our own "Digital Vaccine" and survive in the digital era. And to survive the COVID-19 era, every industry has to be a digital vaccine industry.

The brick-and-mortar business model no longer works effectively anymore. Now it is every business owner's role to be extra innovative in using technology and improvise solutions for a sustainable future. It can be leveraging on mobile apps, video calls, live chats and any digital tools you can think of. 

Based on McKinsey's survey on 3,000 CEOs from 80 countries, 63% of them said using digital tools maintained or improved their sales post-COVID-19. And a staggering 90% said they will continue their digital marketing campaign even if the pandemic draws to a close. 

Mr James Huang highlighted on the convergence of technologies globally such as Blockchain, Fintech, Internet of Things and Automation which change the world trade and business landscape.

In TAITRA, they have been using a business-to-business platform ( to provide digital services and connect global buyers with Taiwanese suppliers. All physical trade shows throughout the year have been transformed into digital exhibitions, enhanced with virtual reality staging features, 360-degree 3D presentations, etc. 

With the aid of technology, you can imagine your business dramatically increases its scale, scope, speed of trade, reach of customers and flow of information. That's where we blur the lines between the digital and the physical, the online and the offline, the real and the virtual. On this great digital journey, Taiwan as a global ICT powerhouse is one of the best partners you can find to ensure smooth sailing all the way. 

Like how Mr James Huang said, let's regroup, rethink, and reprioritise. 
Master the new technologies and digital tools, so you can protect your businesses!
