Commercial Specialists of the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) work closely with local trade show organizers and recruit U.S. companies and their Taiwan representatives to join U.S. Pavilions, catalog shows and trade fairs in Taiwan. They also invite industry representatives, government officials, and scholars from the United States to participate in international conferences held in Taiwan.
We have two new events listed below, one is “Taiwan Smart City Project” in early February, and “Agent workshop with EnvisionRecruit” in early April.
It is estimated that the number of global smart cities will expand from
21 to 88 between 2013-2025. The main purpose of building a Smart
City is to solve resource shortage issues by using ICT technology, and
by enhancing resource utilization more efficiently in order to improve
the quality of city life. The U.S. and Europe are both in the forefront of
this new application. In 2013, Taiwan began its shift to 4G and is
looking to catch up with this trend.
As part of efforts to accelerate Taiwan’s development of fourth-generation
(4G) wireless services,Taiwan’s Ministry of Economic Affairs
plans to fund local mobile carriers, system integrators, and other SME
companies in the related sectors of smart city application beginning
in December 26, 2014. This three-year project, which aims to build
smart cities based on “mature business models”, will allow telecom or
information communications technology (ICT) operators to apply for
subsidies for 4G applications such as security, health management,
cash flow, entertainment, transportation, and logistics.
The U.S. Commercial Service Taiwan offfices will be hosting a webinar
on February 11 to discuss this opportunity. There will be no cost for
U.S. companies offering innovative smart city solutions looking to expand into Taiwan (and Asia). U.S. companies considering establishing representation or partnerships in Taiwan for future expansion efforts.
