TAIPEI AMPA 2005 (the 2005 Taipei International Auto/Motorcycle Parts & Accessories Show) is back bigger and better this May 13th to 16th to offer the best event on automobile & motorcycle parts. This event, just keeps racing from success to success with the last show seeing 5,018 buyers, a 29% increase over the previous event. The spring show will build on this success by kicking off the trade season with an entire slate of new records for number of buyers, exhibitors, scale, and selection.
Organized by Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA), TAIPEI AMPA has grown with the industry to become a trusted name sourcing every facet of product in motoring.
Tight Race for Show Space!
Number one in Asia as 889 exhibitors prepare their best. Competition for show space has been so fierce that local and foreign companies booked out all booth space just days after the application period began last October. That means that TAIPEI AMPA '05 will be chalking up a record 889 exhibitors with 2,150 booths that will span the first and second floors of the TWTC Exhibition Hall 1, as well as Hall 3.
Record Number of Buyers Pre-registered!
The massive growth in TAIPEI AMPA exhibitors has sparked global interest from overseas buyers who this year have pre-registered in record numbers. TAIPEI AMPA'05 expects more than 5,500 overseas buyers, compared with 5,108 in 2004, nearly double the 3,200 turn-out in 2001. Increasingly word is spreading that TAIPEI AMPA is the winning venue for the hottest products on wheels.
Record Exports grow on Quality!
Exports for auto and motorcycle parts reached USD3.34bn for the 11-month period between January to November 2004, a significant increase over 2003 with exports for the entire year coming to USD3.1bn. Such growth in exports is based upon reliable quality that is backed up on several fronts. For example, 700 out of the estimated 2,000 Taiwanese automobile parts producers in Taiwan have already been certified as meeting ISO-9000 requirements, while 200 companies hold QS-9000 certification.
A Winning Line-up of Safe-Tech & E-Solutions

Selections include the latest e-solution products that include mini CCD color cameras, anti-glare auto dimming rear view mirrors, wireless tire pressure monitoring systems and rain sensors.

Info & E-Age offers the sharpest edge!
Taiwan's massive information and electronics industries specialize in giving the edge in auto parts. In fact, those sectors linked to info and electronics have enjoyed the trade's fastest growth. This massive infrastructure has helped propel the parts industry into a new age of motoring.
The real star of the industry, and of TAIPEI AMPA'05, will be auto use computing products. The number of vehicles with such info-linked facilities in Europe, the USA and Japan is projected to soar to 22.2 million vehicles in 2006 from 13.87 million in 2004.
Taiwan's information and electronic manufacturers are well positioned to play their part in this 4C industrial revolution and TAIPEI AMPA 2005 offers the best platform to launch the latest products.

BACK TO NORMAL? The move would be part of a gradual easing of curbs monitored by the CECC, which would retain the quarantine mandate if case numbers rise again The Cabinet yesterday approved a plan to next month reopen Taiwan’s borders to all visitors and lift the quarantine mandate for arrivals, provided the nation’s COVID-19 situation does not escalate. The changes are likely to take effect on Oct. 13 as part of a phased easing of border controls that is to start on Thursday next week when a negative polymerase chain reaction test result would no longer be needed, Cabinet spokesman Lo Ping-cheng (羅秉成) told a news conference. Arriving travelers would instead be given four rapid antigen home test kits, Lo said. The three-day quarantine requirement followed by four days of mandatory
The Chinese navy has the ability to blockade Taiwan, but doing so could prompt a coordinated response by the international community to intervene to resolve the crisis for Taiwan, US Vice Admiral Karl Thomas said. “Clearly if they do something that’s non-kinetic, which, you know, a blockade is less kinetic ... then that allows the international community to weigh in and to work together on how we’re going to solve that challenge,” the commander of the US Navy’s 7th Fleet told the Wall Street Journal in an interview published on Monday. While he could not predict whether China would launch a full-scale
‘NO SURRENDER’: A blockade or outlying island seizure would be an act of war, and China’s drills last month have emboldened Taipei in its response plans, an official said The Republic of China Army Command Headquarters has agreed to purchase 5,000 Kestrel close-range anti-armor missiles worth NT$400 million (US$12.63 million) from the Chungshan Institute of Science and Technology, according to the military’s latest arms purchase bid notice. The army asked the institute to complete the order within 13 months, a military source said on condition of anonymity. Kestrel missiles are designed to penetrate armored vehicles and are used in anti-surface warfare, as they feature optical sights and night vision, and can be operated in all weather conditions. The missile has a 400m range, or a 150m range when used for breaching brick
‘ABSURD’: UN Resolution 2758 expelled the Chiang Kai-Shek government without mentioning Taipei, something the Chinese minister did not acknowledge, Taipei said Taiwan yesterday criticized Chinese Minister of Foreign Affairs Wang Yi (王毅) for “intentionally misinterpreting” a 1971 UN resolution to misrepresent Taiwan’s status to the global community. In his address on Saturday to the UN General Assembly, Wang cited Resolution 2758 as a basis for Beijing’s claim that Taiwan is part of China. He said that Beijing considers Taiwan an “inseparable part of China’s territory since ancient times.” “Only when China is completely reunified can there be enduring peace across the Taiwan Strait... Any move to obstruct China’s reunification is bound to be crushed by the wheels of history,” Wang said. General Assembly Resolution 2758
