Congrats from Government Officials
Kung Ming-Hsin, Minister of National Development Council
This event also represents a significant transformation in Taiwan’s industry. In the past, our exhibition of the year, as you might have known, is Computex, which is the biggest international computer expo along with its InnoVEX, of course, for extending to the field of startups. However, such exhibition features more in hardware and ICT products. On the other hand, smart city takes our event to a higher level. It showcases total solutions integrating both hardware and software, which could really be applied to our daily lives. It indicates the upgrade and transition of Taiwanese industries. This is why I personally love this exhibition.
Mei-Hua Wang, Minister of Economic Affairs
This is one of the most iconic smart city expos in the world, and also a demonstration of our dynamic smart city industry. “Taiwan is Helping!” We expect to connect the synergy of international cities and industries via Smart City Online, developing smart cities with the world. Taiwan is not only a helpful partner in global manufacturing chain, but also in solving cities’ problems as well as enhancing citizens’ life quality.
Dr. Jaushieh Joseph Wu, Minister of Foreign Affairs
Due to the COVID-19, the event organizer, the Taipei Computer Association launches the world’s first online-to-offline international smart city expo this year. By moving online, we hope to continue sharing Taiwan’s best practices and achievements when it comes to applying smart technologies to city governance. We also hope to establish a platform that encourages cities around the world to share their experience of promoting smart cities.
