Taiwan expects more Indian visitors at top ICT event


New Delhi, Feb 8  More Indian visitors are expected in this year’s edition of Taiwan’s leading information and communication technology (ICT) show, Computex, one of its organisers said here on Tuesday.

“For now, we’re expecting to have over 1,600 companies with 5,010 booths in Computex 2017,” Thomas Huang, Deputy Executive Director of Taiwan External Trade Development Council (Taitra), one of the two organisers of the annual event, said at a press conference here. 

“We saw a great turnout at Computex 2016 which attracted more than 40,000 international visitors,” he said. 

“Indian visitors who are the 12th most number of international visitors, saw a substantial increase of 14 per cent from the previous year. With our extensive campaign this year in India and the growing interest of start-ups and ICT brands in our event, we are hopeful to see an exponential growth in the number of visitors from here for Computex 2017.”

This year’s edition will focus on new themes on artificial intelligence and robotics, innovations and startups, business solutions, internet of things (IoT) applications, and gaming and virtual reality (VR). 

Taiwan’s Representative in India Chung Kwang Tien said that bilateral trade between Taiwan and India increased by five times from the year 2000 to reach $7 billion in 2014, and added that his country was adopting a new trade liberalisation policy.

Tien said that Taiwan has also adopted a new foreign policy called New Southbound Policy and as part of it, would promote trade, education, and cultural tourism among other things with India.

He said that Taiwan’s rapid turnaround from an agriculture-based economy to that based on high technology was not a miracle as the world dubbed it.

“We transformed very rapidly in the last 60 years going from heavy industries to high technology,” Tien said.

“But it was not an economic miracle. We worked very hard for it,” he added.
