Description

Taiwan is an accessible, highly developed economy. In 2019 Taiwan was NSW's fifth largest merchandise export market. In 2018 Taiwan was Australia’s sixth-largest export market, and two-way trade reached AUD 17.6 billion.

While natural resources comprise the bulk of Australian exports to Taiwan, Taiwan is a tech-based economy and presents significant opportunities for innovative NSW businesses. Initiatives including the ‘Asian Silicon Valley’ present opportunities in areas such as advanced manufacturing; fintech; agtech; smart city development; and urban development.

Since 2016 under the ‘New Southbound Policy’, Taiwan has actively pursued greater trade, investment, education and research links with ASEAN, South Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

The webinar will cover:

  • A market overview and update from Walter M.S. Yeh, President and CEO of the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA)
  • Presentations by Mark Hardy, Founder and Managing Director of Weatherzone, and Mark Luo, Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer of Quantum Brilliance about their experiences in doing business with and in the Taiwan market
  • An introduction to the Australia-Taiwan Business Council (ATBC)
  • A moderated online Q&A session.

Who should attend?

This webinar is aimed at export-ready NSW-based businesses that are either interested in exporting to the Taiwan market, or already have some experience in working with the Taiwan market.
