More info and registraion

While the world reels from a raging pandemic, Taiwan holds concerts and donates medical masks to partners around the world. By holding COVID-19 at bay, Taiwan has proven that it’s not only an irreplaceable node in the world’s electronics and manufacturing infrastructure, but also a model for health care delivery and responsive democratic governance.   

With the balance of security and innovation emerging as a fault line in the next era of globalization, Taiwan is positioning itself as a trusted platform for U.S. companies engaging with Asia, the world’s most dynamic region. 

Join this webinar presented by the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Atlanta to gain a high-level view of partnership prospects in innovation, technology and trade under the new Biden administration.
