Event in Taiwan: Trade in Europe 2019

Submitted by Caroline Guillet on 30 July 2019


Taiwanese companies have worked closely with European companies for decades. Indeed, Europe is Taiwan’s third largest trade partner. According to Taiwan Directorate General of Customs statistics, Taiwan exported US$315.7 billion to Europe in 2018, accounting for 9.4% of Taiwan’s total exports, 8.3% higher than 2017.

The Bureau of Foreign Trade (BOFT) and TAITRA are co-hosting the ‘2019 Trade with Europe’ in Taipei, which aims to augment Taiwan-Europe bilateral business cooperation. One-on-one business matchmaking meetings facilitated by TAITRA will enable European businesses to tap into Taiwan’s global supply chain and vice versa. The event reimburses qualified buyers for travel expense incurred during the visit.
