Five Taiwanese companies were highlighted during an online product launch held this week while the Taipei AMPA/AutoTronics, is being held in Taipei.
Taipei AMPA/AutoTronics is one of few automotive shows being held this year after the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic put a halt to most trade shows.
The Taiwan External Trade Development Council, also known as TAITRA, held the Taiwan Excellence 2020 Auto Safety Innovation Online Product Launch in conjunction with Taiwan’s Bureau of Foreign Trade. The focus was auto safety and lighting products.
In his opening remarks, Simon Wang, executive Vice President of TAITRA, said Taiwan has successfully handled Covid-19 and the island has contracted very few cases.
“The reason is we have very good governance as well as people who are disciplined to follow the guidelines set by the government as well as technology very well applied to the management and controlled measures,” Wang said. “If we take the earth as a desert, then Taiwan can be regarded as a piece of an oasis which has safeguarded well in terms of health and industry.”
Because of the slump of market demand worldwide, Taiwan has grown by 2.4 percent for the first 9 months of this year, Wang said.
Nearly every country has experienced a GDP downturn, which is not the case in Taiwan, Wang said. “Taiwan is still predicted to have 1.5 percent GDP growth this year; and will have 2.9 percent GDP growth next year in 2021,” he said.
