The Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office (TECRO) will hold a catalog show at the Riyadh Chamber of Commerce and Industry (RCCI) on April 7 and in Dammam on April 15.
“We welcome any Saudi company and relevant parties interested in trading and negotiating business affairs with Taiwanese manufacturers to visit the show, whose main objective is to promote globally competitive Taiwanese products in the Kingdom,” TECRO said in a statement.
“There’s a potential for our products in the Kingdom. In addition, it saves Saudi buyers’ valuable time and cost in locating and visiting Taiwanese suppliers,” the statement added.
Over 200 Taiwanese firms will be represented during the show.
“For buyers who are not able to come to visit suppliers in Taiwan, the catalog show plays an ideal platform for them to find suitable suppliers of targeted products in an efficient way,” TECRO stated.
“The quality of Taiwanese products is superior and the price is fair in the global markets,” it added.
“Taiwan’s modularization and mass production capabilities as well as many key technologies make it an important force for East Asia to become the largest production base in the world.
Additionally, the strong orders from Taiwan’s manufacturers prove a sturdy confidence from world buyers of Taiwan’s products,” TECRO stated.
It added that Saudi Arabia is one of the major economic partners of Taiwan, ranking first in the list of trading partners in the region. In 2013, the bilateral trade rose 4.64 percent to $17.41 billion, with Taiwan’s exports to the Kingdom touching $15.59 billion.
“It indicates that there is plenty of room for expanding the mutually beneficial business cooperation in multi-area industries between Saudi Arabia and Taiwan,” TECRO added.
The show consists of 20 main industrial categories that include IT and ICT products, petrochemical, plastic and chemical, medical supplies, cement and steel, machines and tools, automobile and accessory, transportation, textile and cloth, beauty accessories, construction, furnishings and household electric appliances, office equipment, leisure and athletic gear, food and beverages, toys and gifts, and stationery.
Catalogs of more than 200 Taiwanese companies will be on display at the show.
