The Southeast Asian market is highly related to Taiwan's auto-parts industry. In addition, in line with the government's New Southbound Policy, the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) organized "Explore Your Business Opportunities - Taiwan’s Auto Parts Industry and Related Trade Shows Seminar" in Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, and Manila on February 20, 22 and 24, respectively. Planning and execution has been handled by the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA). Local industry associations, including the Federation of Engineering and Motor Parts Traders Association Malaysia (FEMPTAM) and the Federation of Thai Industries (FTI), also invited their members and vendors to participate in the event, further demonstrating the importance of Taiwan's automobile industry to related industries in Southeast Asian countries.
The three events drew more than 200 enthusiastic attendees. Executive managers from benchmark companies participated in the seminars such as the Malaysian subsidiary of KYB (the world's largest manufacturer of shock absorbers); BOSCH dealer Tai Teik Hung; BKZ Bikerz; Thai Summit (a renowned Thai manufacturer of auto parts and accessories); the multinational trader SCG Trading; Electric Vehicles (Thailand) PLC; Le'Guider Int'l E-Trike Electronics Assembly Phil. Inc. (a Filipino manufacturer of electric vehicles and jeepneys); ToJo Motors Corp.; and TR AUTOCARE SYSTEMS, INC. (a manufacturer of auto parts and accessories). The events were covered by well-known local media outlets such as Sin Chew Daily, Nanyang Siang Pau, China Press, Malay Mail, Malaysia SME, CNA News, and Macroview Television.
In addition to introducing the current status and strengths of Taiwan's industries in auto parts & accessories, automotive electronics, electric vehicles, and motorcycles, the five-day 4-in-1 exhibitions for auto parts and motorcycles that will take place in Taipei on April 19 were also promoted. During the networking with the participants after seminars, they requested for more information about visiting the shows. FTI announced that it would call on the local industry to go to Taiwan and visit the shows to look for business opportunities and future cooperation.
