MBS Luncheon: Why Taiwan matters - The 'Green Silicon Island' and the World Economy
The Online Event "Why Taiwan matters - The 'Green Silicon Island' and the World Economy" takes place on July 8 from 12 to 1 pm.
Taiwan is a fascinating island: With only 23 million inhabitants, located east of the Chinese mainland, Taiwan is often overlooked. Taiwanese companies are not only world market leaders in chip production and other IT sectors, but Taiwan is also the fifth largest trading partner of German companies in Asia. No one invests more in Taiwan than German companies. Currently, Taiwan is navigating through the CoViD19 pandemic in an exemplary manner. The production of 20 million masks - per day - contributes to this.
But the Taiwanese government cannot pass on its experience in international organisations or official international cooperation with other countries without the People's Republic of China putting pressure on the participating countries. The "One China Policy" massively restricts Taiwan's international participation. It is therefore all the more worthwhile to focus during the online event - briefly and concisely during your lunch break - on this highly innovative island with probably the most liberal society in Asia.
This online event takes place in English language.
