COMPUTEX 2019 and Taiwan Excellence at Convergence India

COMPUTEX 2019 focuses on fundamentals and future trends such as AI & IoT, 5G, Blockchain, Innovations & Startups, and Gaming & XR. Feature exhibit includes Asia’s biggest startup event – InnoVEX, a tech hub for international startups to meet global investors and manufacturing partners. Moreover, COMPUTEX d&i awards, an innovation-focused competition, highlight and honor products with excellent design as well as technical innovation are being showcased at Convergence India.
Taiwan Excellence participates at Convergence India this year by revealing cutting-edge tech products to restate its commitment to support India’s digital mission. Some of the hottest products include Avision’s Self-Service Copier and PaperAir 10, Edimax’s EdiGreen Air Quality Detector with PM2.5, and many other prominent brands as well as a host of senior corporate leaders and stalwarts from leading Taiwanese brands.
India is emerging as a major sourcing destination for the ICT industry due to the various initiatives undertaken by the government like Digital India, Smart Cities, and Startup India. India’s demand for development and Taiwan’s willingness to share its expertise have led the two nations to become strategically complementary for mutual progress and benefit.
With the presence of COMPUTEX d&i awards and Taiwan Excellence at Convergence India 2019, more opportunities for trade, industry collaboration, and knowledge partnerships between India and Taiwan can be generated.
In addition, TAITRA has planned year-round activities in India to develop closer ties and increase further cooperation. Activities include meetings between government officials, trade delegations, industry seminars, and trade shows. SMART ASIA India – Expo & Summit, a B2B and B2G trade show initiated by TAITRA to facilitate India’s ambitious ‘Smart Cities Mission’, will be held from 17th to 19th of October this year at the Bombay Exhibition Center (BEC). It will focus on ‘Smart Transportation’, ‘Smart Energy & Water Management’, ‘Smart City Development & Environmental Sustainability’, and ‘IoT Solutions’ to grasp India’s smart city business opportunities and to enhance further cooperation between the two countries.
