Taiwan promotes its ICT industry in Thailand

Bangkok, Oct. 30 (CNA) The Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) hosted a presentation in Thailand on Monday to promote Taiwan's information and communication technology (ICT). Hong Ming-chin, director of TAITRA's Exhibition Department, said the ICT sector is Taiwan's most competitive industry, producing 86 percent of the world's tablet computers. The TAITRA also promoted a series of major technology exhibitions that will be held in Taiwan next year, including Computex Taipei, Display Taiwan, the Photonics Festival and Taipei International Electronics Show (Taitronics). After the presentation, TAITRA staff met with officials from the Association of Thai ICT Industry (ATCI). With Taiwan's edge in innovation and quality, it should be the number one partner of the Thai ICT industry, the TAITRA said. The Thai association said the tablet market in Thailand has been growing rapidly, with demand in 2012 estimated to reach 2.5 million units. This year, Thailand was the 10th largest buyer at Computex Taipei, the eighth largest buyer at the Photonics Festival, and the seventh biggest at Taitronics, according to the TAITRA. The TAITRA delegation recently held a similar promotional event in Vietnam and is scheduled to visit Indonesia next. (By Namita Lin and Lilian Wu)
