Staff writer, with CNA

The 38th Taipei International Electronics Show (Taitronics) will highlight Taiwan’s transition from hardware manufacturing to the development of smart living technologies in a bid to improve the nation’s global competitiveness, organizers said yesterday.

The annual electronics fair, organized by the Taiwan External Trade Development Council and the Taiwan Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers’ Association, will be held from Oct. 9 to 12 alongside the Broadband Taiwan and Cloud and IOT Taiwan shows.

With 800 exhibitors and 1,500 booths, the electronics trade show at the Taipei World Trade Center Nangang Exhibition Hall is expected to attract 50,000 local and foreign visitors, the organizers said.

Taitronics will showcase various electronic components, including batteries and power supplies, LED lighting devices, wires and cables, smart living technologies and consumer electronics, they said.

Vice Minister of Economic Affairs Bill Cho (卓士昭) said the themes of the three shows are in line with the government’s policy to develop smart living technologies.

Smart living technologies refer cloud computing, smart electric vehicles, green building and industrialization of patents, he said.

“Unlike the technologies in the past that were driven by manufacturing and sales, smart living technologies are more human-centric and are aimed at improving consumers’ happiness,” Cho said at a press conference to promote the shows.
