Inventors wow judges


Taiwan captured the global limelight at the 30th Geneva International Invention Exhibition Friday, with all of its 21 entries winning top prizes. They were awarded 13 gold, six silver and two bronze medals at the five-day exhibition, which opened on May 1. A panel of 67 judges chose the masterworks by 17 Taiwanese inventors two days before the exhibition at Palexpo closes today. Chang Meng-cheng (張孟正), president of the Association of Taiwan Inventors, said he was exhilarated. "I was thrilled by the excellent record of our inventors," he said. At Geneva as a judge on the panel, Chang said Taiwan's excellent record has caught the attention of organizers of invention exhibitions around the world. "Many of them want to show our works in their exhibitions," Chang said. Altogether 1,000 entries from 44 countries are on display at the Palexpo exhibition, which is attracting an estimated 85,000 visitors.
