Organized by Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA), Taiwan Expo is its flagship exhibition to fortify the ties between Taiwan and the ASEAN countries including India. Since its inception in 2017, the Taiwan Expo has emerged as a leading platform for Taiwanese businesses to explore new opportunities, exchange ideas, and forge partnerships in ASEAN, South Asia, and North America. Thus, the Expo is credited with being the premier online sourcing hub in ASEAN countries and India. It is a testament of Taiwan’s strong and long-term commitment to promoting bilateral trade relationships with India.
According to the Taiwan government’s official data, India is its 16th-largest trading partner and 13th-largest export destination. It is interesting to note that the bilateral trade between India and Taiwan totaled $8.46 billion in 2022, representing an increase of 9.86% over 2021.
In recent years, India is building itself as a viable alternative hub within the global supply chain framework and the ongoing geopolitical and economic scenario provides synergy to both India and Taiwan with opportunities to navigate cooperation for achieving mutually beneficial commercial ties through stronger business bilateral relations.
