TAITRA Chairman James Huang recently led a delegation to Tel Aviv to explore opportunities for closer cooperation between the high-tech and startup sectors of Taiwan and Israel.
The members of the TAITRA delegation included representatives from 14 Taiwan companies in the fields of technology and finance, including LiteOn, Hotung Venture Group, Monte Jade Science & Technology Association of Taiwan, Garage+, and CDIB Capital Group.
During the delegation's visit, a 'Seminar on Taiwan AIoT Industry & COMPUTEX 2018' was held with the attendance of 85 Israel companies active in the fields of IoT, AI and startups. A series of meetings were also arranged for the delegation to meet with Israel's high-tech industry leaders.
At the seminar, TAITRA President & CEO Walter Yeh and Israel Export & International Cooperation Institute Director General Gadi Arieli signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to promote Israel-Taiwan joint ventures and exchange of visits, as well as mutual assistance on various exhibitions, events and trade promoting activities.
“Israel is the hub for global high-tech industries, and Israel is the start-up nation,” TAITRA Chairman James Huang told Israel newa media Arutz Sheva. “So we came to Israel to seek strategic cooperation in the fields of start-up and high-tech industries and also major capital corporations.”
“In the future we intend to bring more Taiwanese companies to Israel and we will also invite leading Israeli companies to come to Taiwan and showcase their technologies,” he added.
