Taiwan has been undoubtedly a super power in the technology sector. They are one of the countries that has given solutions aimed at supporting remote work and study technologies. This has proven very useful now that COVID19 happened and everyone had to stay at home.
For those who don't know, Taiwan Excellence is the international promotional campaign of the Bureau of Foreign Trade and Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA). They recently introduced a suite of Remote Video Conferencing solutions. In a recent livestream press conference, TAITRA showcased several of these from Taiwan. All of which can address the need for Remote Video Conferencing which can be used either for work or education.
This is no surprise as Taiwan’s strong ICT technology and hunger for innovation has already impressed a lot of countries including the Philippines. Taiwanese brands have made their mark in being part of the new norm as we all find new ways to do work and learning.
Simon Wang, the Executive Vice President of TAITRA says "Due to the pandemic, a lot of people have lost mobility, the ability to travel anywhere. This also hampers physical contact with people, no more shaking hands, meetings and conferences. People had to do it at the comforts of their own homes, to spend more time online, relying on information security to ensure communication over the internet remains safe. This is why Taiwan Excellence, which likens the Oscars of the US for the best in movies, is a symbol of the best products selected by the Taiwanese government. For quality but reasonably priced networking solutions, Taiwan, specifically Taiwan Excellence products, are in position to fill that need."
At the virtual press conference, 4 Taiwanese brands showcased their products aimed to enhance the quality and utility of remote communication.
