The uncertain outlook in the international economic and trading environment is having a pronounced impact on investment flows, and is redrawing the map of global industrial production. Taiwan has outstanding R&D capabilities, comprehensive industry clusters, and a secure investment environment, making it an ideal partner for multinational corporations that are seeking innovation breakthroughs in response to an evolving global economy.

The “Taiwan Business Alliance Conference” is Taiwan's most prestigious annual investment promotion event, and it provides a platform for showcasing the achievements of international corporations operating in Taiwan as well as Taiwan’s investment potential. The theme of this year’s Conference is “Secure and Trustworthy,” with a focus on emerging business areas such as 5G mobile telecommunications, the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), Big Data, electric vehicles, and self-driving cars. Senior managers of transnational corporations operating in Taiwan have been invited to participate in the Conference, and will provide in-depth analysis of industry trends and the opportunities associated with investing in Taiwan. The Conference represents a marvelous opportunity to learn about new cutting-edge technology applications and changing patterns in global business. One new element in this year's Conference will be the “Economic Contribution Award for Foreign Companies in Taiwan”, which will recognize foreign firms that have invested in Taiwan on an ongoing basis and have made major contributions to Taiwan's economic growth and prosperity.

Today, we are facing major changes in the global economic and trading environment and a restructuring of supply chains. At this crucial moment, we cordially invite you to attend the 2019 Taiwan Business Alliance Conference and work together with Taiwan to seize new opportunities in a rapidly changing global environment!
