Three exhibitions presenting the latest electronics, routers and cloud computing software will take place at the Taipei World Trade Center Nangang Exhibition Hall from Tuesday through Oct. 11, the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) said yesterday.

At the exhibitions, 738 local and foreign firms will host 1,415 booths to showcase their latest products, such as key components used in smartphones and tablets, energy-efficient power supplies and servers using cloud computing technology, TAITRA Secretary-General Huang Wen-rong (黃文榮) told a press conference.

Among the exhibitors are 93 firms from China, Japan and India, TAITRA said. Under the theme of “Smart Life,” the exhibitions are expected to attract more than 45,000 visitors, it said.

Delta Electronics Inc (台達電), the nation’s top supplier of power supply units, will exhibit its latest energy-efficient power supply products, while Chunghwa Telecom Co (中華電信), the nation’s top telecommunications operator, will present its latest cloud computing technologies and contract PC maker Inventec Corp (英業達) will display its latest monitor and server products, TAITRA said.

In addition, after ASEAN became the nation’s second-largest trade partner, accounting for more than 20 percent of the country’s total exports last year, the Ministry of Economic Affairs this year invited government officials from the region to join a summit meeting at the exhibitions.

Representatives from Chunghwa Telecom, US network equipment maker Cisco Systems Inc and Japanese consumer electronics producer Panasonic Corp will all take part in the summit to give speeches and exchange ideas, Vice Minister of Economic Affairs Bill Cho (卓士昭) said.

TAITRA will also arrange more than 600 business matchmaking meetings alongside the exhibitions.
