This was the first event of such kind during Computex, which attracted 38 company representatives who had took part in a total of 35 one-on-one meetings. The meetings concluded with the creation of some USD 1.5 million in business deals. The event also helped Taiwanese companies expand their market into Europe.
Ms. Arnaudova of Komaks Ltd. from Bulgaria mentioned that “Taiwan is the best source and the reason for my travel to Taiwan is to meet with suitable keyboard manufacturers”. To facilitate cooperation between both sides, EEN Taiwan had arranged meetings for Komaks Ltd. and two of the world’s major keyboard manufacturing enterprises, Sunrex Technology Corp. and LiteOn Technology Corp.. After the meeting, Ms. Arnaudova stated, “Everything was perfect. We expect to have further business relationships with Taiwanese companies and are willing to join the event next time.”
