Organised by the Bureau of Foreign Trade at the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Taiwan with the Taiwan External Trade Development Council and the Sydney based Taiwan Trade Centre, the ensuing Exhibition will provide a platform for the participating companies to showcase their latest innovative and finest products.
“This event will not only be an opportunity to discover what is new but also to provide your business with knowledge and information to deliver a competitive edge within your industry sector,” a notification said.
The notification added that Taiwanese manufacturers recognise that businesses in New Zealand dealing in hardware, gardening, industrial protection, electronic connector and machinery industries would benefit from innovation occurring in the related industries worldwide.
