Taiwan government clear on mission to lead world in IT development with CeBIT

16 May 17

Taiwan has been one of the major manufacturing and industrial powerhouses since the 1980s, and now the government is being clear as glass in its mission to lead the world in the development of information technology.

According to Andrew Liu, manager of TAITRA Taipei and ambassador for the Taiwan Excellence Award, the nation’s high-tech products span various sectors and have won the trust and praise from users worldwide.

Liu asserts the island’s consumer electronics products embody great value and innovation, and cutting edge design. Taiwan is the world’s largest chipmaker, responsible for close to a quarter of the world’s semiconductor chip production.

Taiwanese-based companies are responsible for about three quarters of the world’s PCs, a third of the world’s liquid crystal displays (LCDs) and twenty percent of mobile phones sold worldwide.

For the first time, the Taiwan Excellence will showcase the top performing innovators of 2016-17 at CeBIT on 23 May 2017. 

Specialist developers and makers of voice activated robot personal assistants, gaming gears, smart office and home, education devices and liquid-cooled open frame tempered glass PC cases will all be present at the event.

“Taiwan has been a major industrial powerhouse and technological innovator and it is our intention to continue to lead global development of information technology,” says Liu.

"The Taiwan Excellence winners are awarded based on the country’s finest research and development, design, quality and marketing.

Liu says Taiwan’s connection to innovative value and its real world application is evident amongst the award winners.

“I look forward to sharing our award winners from start-up phase through to established ICT, lifestyle transport products and other products from various industries.”

Liu will be leading the showcase, sharing the products from Taiwan’s top performs including Asus, Aver, Delta, Edimax, IEI, In Win and Thermaltake.
