For the 7th time TGN will organize Taiwan Business Day in The Netherlands, the main event for Dutch businesses to learn about the culutures and business opportunities in working with companies and institutions in Taiwan. This year’s special attention will go to the eHealth and Healthy Aging industries.
First of all Taiwan is a regional production and innovation powerhouse in the Far East, ‘made in Taiwan’ is a quality brand on its own. On top of that Taiwan is known for its quality of living standards and ease of doing business. In that regard it really has advantages over neighboring countries.Where The Netherlands is the Gateway to Europe, Taiwan is the Gateway to the Far East of Asia which is illustrated with six large Taiwanese corporations in the Fortune 500 like Foxconn and Quanta Computers.
The Taiwanese and Dutch economy have many similarities, an open economy with a large export focus. SME’s play a main role in both countries, both in the service industry as in production and as suppliers of the large corporations. General differences are that Taiwanese companies have traditionally focused on outsourced production and Dutch companies on design, trade and services. In recent years both countries have moved to top regional rankings on innovation and start-up climate, showing that both economies are going through rapid renewal processes. That’s why Taiwan Business Day offers opportunities for young companies and scaleups from both countries – to match/mix and succeed.
Taiwan Business Day will offer you information about business opportunities in Taiwan and the possibility to meet business people and business support organizations from Taiwan to get access to these opportunities. Like very year you’ll be able to meet your future business partner, government support and investor to expand your business. After Taiwan Business Day the Taiwan Dinner is organized to extend your business experience in a Taiwanese way. TGN will bring in people and opportunities from Taiwan, so you can have direct access to them. Spending an afternoon, preferably extended in the evening, will expand your horizon!
Reserve this date – Tuesday 2 October – in your calendar so you can’t miss out on this opportunity!
