Taiwan Excellence has long symbolized the epitome of Taiwanese manufacturing. Products bearing this mark of excellence is recognized globally for their quality. With that, Taiwan Excellence will join the upcoming World Congress on IT (WCIT) from November 18 to 20 and showcase 22 information and communication technology solutions from 14 leading hi-tech companies in a bid to foster stronger business opportunities.
WCIT is one of the most important information technology events in the world and is often referred to as the Olympics of ICT. Hosted by the World Information Technology and Services Alliance (WITSA) in a different country each year, the exhibition attracts participants from industries, governments, and academia from around the world. Taiwan has previously played host to the event in the year 2000 and 2017, while Armenia was the host for 2019.
After almost two decades, Malaysia is once again playing host to the WCIT in 2020 with the theme “The Gateway to Southeast Asia”. However, due to the ongoing Covid-19 global pandemic, the Penang State Government that is hosting the event has decided to switch to a full-featured online exhibition that includes keynote speeches and forums to create a healthy environment for building co-operations.
Virtual Reality Paves the Way to Real-World Business Synergies
Taiwan, being one of the global powerhouses in the ICT industry, will use a 360-degree panoramic technology to build a 3D Smart Taiwan Virtual Reality Pavilion. To fully demonstrate the innovative solutions of Taiwan’s ICT technology, the Ministry of Economic Affairs has 37 outstanding Taiwanese manufacturers in various fields, including 14 Taiwan Excellence awarded-winning brands to jointly present four major areas: Contactless Economy, Smart Living, Smart Retail, and Startup. In addition, there will also be B2B matching areas and online forums to create international business opportunities for Taiwanese businesses.
Mr James C.F. Huang, Chairman of TAITRA, is scheduled to give an online keynote speech at 4.20 pm on the 18th of November on the topic “Beyond COVID: Technology as Vaccines for Business” where he will discuss how this global pandemic has accelerated global digitalization and calls for companies to transition effectively to a more robust business model through the mastery of new technologies and digital tools to immunize themselves for the future.
