Taiwan Expo 2020 in Malaysia Online @ 25-27 November 2020

Taiwan Expo is back in Malaysia!

Since the last installment in Penang in 2019, we are happy that this year Taiwan Expo is going online from 25 November - 27 November 2020. No worries about any travel restrictions, because you'll get to explore Taiwan Expo anywhere you want, be it at home, office or cafe etc!

This marks the 4th edition of Taiwan Expo in Malaysia, a popular trade exhibition to foster the business opportunities between Malaysia and Taiwan. During the opening ceremony, distinguished guests from Taiwan and Malaysia have been invited for a short speech via a unique virtual session. 

Dr. Guann-Jyh Lee, Deputy Director General, Bureau of Foreign Trade,
Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA)

First and foremost, Dr Lee mentioned that this Expo is a meaningful event to showcase strength and competitiveness of Taiwan's multiple industry areas in Malaysia. They have successfully invited more than 600 Taiwanese businesses to participate in this huge event. Over the upcoming 3 days, it is estimated that more than 5,500 participants will be joining the Expo to enhance the Malaysia-Taiwan business collaborations.  

Ms. Anne Hung, Representative of Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Malaysia 

Ms Anne further emphasises on the importance of fostering the economic and trade exchanges between Malaysia and Taiwan, as currently there are already thousands of investors from Taiwan who expand their businesses here in Malaysia. 

In fact, in 2019, Malaysia is Taiwan's 7th largest trading partner mainly for electrical and electronic products, scientific equipment, chemical-related products etc. Surely the bilateral trade between Malaysia and Taiwan will continue to grow. 

Datuk Michael Kang Hua Keong
National President of SME Association of Malaysia 

Datuk Michael shared that over 30,000 SMEs have ended their operations throughout this pandemic period in Malaysia. The current economy in Malaysia is recovering decently, mainly because Malaysians are resourceful in times of challenge and look for new business opportunities during difficult times. This is exactly the reason why we gather here today for Taiwan Expo 2020 to tap into the Taiwanese technology and innovation through this Expo.
