As of December 2017, the accumulative investment amount from Taiwan into India reached US$355 million. Similarly, our bilateral trade volume reached US$6.3. billion in 2017, making Taiwan India’s 18th largest trade partner.”

This special event gives an opportunity to business leaders from both the countries to exchange ideas and share expertise.

I am confident all the exhibitors will be able to make new business contacts while visitors will get to know what makes our products and services unique and special”.
