Taipei successfully hosted the APO’s Eco-products International Fair (EPIF) from 13 to 16 March at the Taipei World Trade Center. President Ying-Jeou Ma and Vice Minister of Economic Affairs Jong-Chin Shen attended the event organized by the APO and Bureau of Foreign Trade of the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA). It was implemented by the China Productivity Center, Taiwan Green Trade Project of the MOEA, and Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA).
The exhibition, themed Go Green, Act Greener, focused mainly on the B2B (business-to-business), B2C (business-to-consumer), and B2G (business-to-government) models and exhibited cutting-edge, environmentally friendly eco-technologies, eco-products, and eco-services.
More than 200 exhibitors from all over Asia, Europe, and Central America engaged about 17,500 trade and public visitors. Trade visitor Sailen Bhowmick from India, who was interested in solar power and domestic water treatment products, commented, “My goal was to find business partners and help Taiwanese companies expand their businesses to India. I must say that I am very impressed by the quality of the products I found.”
Dragos Zavarache from Romania visited the exhibition in search of auto electrical devices: “Through one-on-one business matchmaking meetings and subsequent discussions during the fair, I found four high-potential Taiwanese companies to work with.”
An international conference on Achieving Sustainability to Empower Future Generations took place concurrently with a parade of renowned speakers from the Republic of China, Japan, Republic of Korea, Singapore, and USA. More than 200 participants from across the region attended.
