2008 The 2nd-annual Taiwan Tourism Exposition, organized by Taipei Association of Travel Agents, started yesterday (May 16) at the Taipei World Trade Center Exhibition Hall 3, 350 agencies from local and foreign countries participated in this show. Governments and travel agencies in Taiwan hoped this exhibition can inspire the tourism industry from a recent earthquake in Sichuan.

Before the opening day, Peter Ting, Vice Chairman of the Taipei Association of Travel Agents, spoke to Wikinews Journalist Rico Shen about the recent earthquake, he said:

It [the earthquake] wouldn’t make a great strike for the [tourism] industry, but it apparently effected us [the industry] in consequence. In fact, we hoped this [Sichuan] earthquake never happened even though it is partial for us. Currently, not only our delegates visited there to gain current conditions [after the earthquake], but also the Tourism Bureau [of the Republic of China] also did the “Travel Warning” announcement for Sichuan as “No Visiting Place”. Besides of this, I think the other places [or nations] would be effected less than Sichuan. Therefore, I hope visitors can choose suitable travel packages after several views for safety issue.

Vincent Siew, the pre-elected Vice President of the Republic of China, invited to join the Opening Ceremony yesterday, said to tourism industry:

2008 Taiwan Tourism Exposition to encourage the tourism industry after Sichuan earthquake
The tourism industry is a potential industry in Taiwan, I hope this industry can be properly promoted with some modifications from our laws after this earthquake to encourage more foreign visitors visit Taiwan.

Intelligent Hazard Removing Robot, invented by Chungshan Institute of Science and Technology, attracted several buyers’ eyes especially from security industry.
Image: Rico Shen.

The 2008 Taipei CNC Machine Tools & Manufacturing Technology Show (MT duo) and Taiwan International Robot Exhibition (Robot Taiwan 2008) both began yesterday. These events are both taking place in the build up to Taipei International Machine Tool Show (TIMTOS 2009) at TWTC Nangang, which is due to take place next year.

The 2008 MT duo and Robot Taiwan mainly focused on software designed for industry, rather than consumers. This is in contrast to the choice of software displayed in many Japanese Trade Shows, which often displays products designed for consumers.

Robotics is a major industry in Taiwan. As a result the organizer of the event decided to refine “Manufacturing Taipei” and split it into the “Robot & Industrial Automation” of Manufacturing Taipei and “Robot Taiwan”.

There was also a “Taiwan International Robotics Forum” and “Seminars on MT duo” at the event. Both were designed to attract executives from IT, manufacturing, and machinery industries to promote the worldwide use of robotics in industry.

Cquote1.svg There were several crisis for the automobile industry in Taiwan because of the decrease of market scale, low self-independence, technology transition, and the rise up of oil prices. But after in conjunction with light-weighting, electronical, and energy-saving related industries, there were other chances and challenges for the automobile industry in Taiwan. Currently, the Taiwan Automotive Research Consortium should do a proper role on R&D, policy driving, and quality improving, even though urban and rural differences, and key issue of carbon dioxide wasting, if there is a new innovation, Taiwan will be a good example in the automobile industry in the world.

Cquote1.svg We [the TAITRA and the automobile industry] ever met a damn difficult problem on show space of this show, because in the past years, there were only three exhibition halls at TWTC (Hall 1, 2, 3), even though we [the TAITRA] do several attempts on scale expansions, still, there’s no enough space for the automobile industry. Finally, After confirmation of its construction of TWTC Nangang, we decided to enroll this show into TWTC Nangang. With 937 companies participating including foreign participants from United Kingdom, Italy, France, Japan, United States, India, Malaysia, Korea, and China, this show will bring on internationalization as the Taipei Cycle and TaiSPO ever concurrently showcased in March. Cquote2.svg

—Yung-chuan Chao, President of Taiwan External Trade Development Council

Cquote1.svg This industry is an export-oriented market in Taiwan. According to some statistics, its production value reached NT$153.9 billion dollars, and its export value reached USD$471 million dollars, those facts showcased several growths on its [automobile] industry. With several OBMs get certified on innovative products, the brand of “Made in Taiwan” was progressively steady. This echoed our show slogan – “Without Taiwan, You Don’t Get Parts!” I hope the automobile industry in Taiwan can play a great role in the world with participants’ hard works. Cquote2.svg

—Fadah Hsieh, Vice Minister of Economic Affairs of the Republic of China.

Cquote1.svg This year of Motorcycle Taiwan has some differences especially on the 5th-cycle standard pavilion because the environment issue is progressively focused by the automobile industry in the world. We [the TAITRA] thanked several supports by world-class companies YAMAHA to pay more attentions on this pavilion. I think this issue should be more discussed by professionals from academic units, industry, and governments not only in Taiwan. Cquote2.svg

—Donald W. Lu, Vice President of TAITRA.

The three main shows in different venues, highlighting key issues like the environment, energy-efficiency, and industry transformations. TAITRA held “AutoTronics Forum” and “Taiwan Automotive International Forum & Exhibition” in hopes of forecasting the future of the electronic and automobile industries. Yamaha Corporation put on the “‘Fi’ 5th-Stage Emission Standard Pavilion” to showcase the research achievement and solutions for the future standard of fifth-cycle.
