TAITRA Online Events Helping Companies Minimize Impact of COVID-19

The coronavirus has been impacting the global economy since its outbreak in January 2020. As countries continue to implement lockdown measures, physical international trading events have grinded to a halt. Online business activities on the other hand have surged and are being embraced by more and more businesses worldwide.

Pandemic or not, as the foremost trade promoter of Taiwan, TAITRA is committed to the country’s business communities with the world. While many physical trade promoting events have been put on hold in the first half of 2020, TAITRA has expanded its digital channels to connect international companies with quality suppliers and products from Taiwan.

In May 19-20, TAITRA held the country’s first contactless online trade mission and enabled 12 Taiwanese companies from the machinery, beauty, food, auto parts, hardware and medical sectors to meet international buyers in over 100 online meeting sessions. The online trade mission was joined by more than 70 buyers from Thailand and the Philippines. TAITRA has scheduled 2 more events in June and September for buyers from India and Japan, respectively.

For 2020, TAITRA has so far planned 185 online events including trade shows, meetings, product launches, seminars, press conferences and trade missions. The events cover a wide range of industries, including consumer goods, food, sporting, biotech, healthcare, ICT, electronics and machinery. See more at:…
