This remarkable Expo attracted more than 15,000 visitors from diverse industry sectors, encompassing aspiring entrepreneurs, SME owners, and urban consumers. The collective engagement at the Expo resulted in the creation of business opportunities worth over $75 million.
Running from October 5 to 7, 2023, the Expo adopted the theme of “Explore Taiwan in India.” It was inaugurated with grandeur by James C.F Huang, Chairman of the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA), and Shri Devendra Fadnavis, Deputy Chief Minister of the Government of Maharashtra.

The Expo was organized into six core themes and featured seven pavilions, each dedicated to key categories, including Smart Manufacturing, Smart City, Smart Medical, Smart Agriculture, Smart Lifestyle, and Electric Vehicles (EV).
One of the significant highlights of the Taiwan Expo was its effective utilization of social media as a means of conveying information about high-quality Taiwanese products to a broader Indian audience. The Expo invited three prominent Indian social media influencers to engage with exhibiting companies, creating unboxing videos of the showcased products. This approach significantly heightened the visibility and perceived value of Taiwanese products among the Indian consumer base.
Taiwan Expo India is organized by the International Trade Administration (TITA) and the Ministry of Economic Affairs, in collaboration with TAITRA. It serves as the flagship exhibition aimed at strengthening ties between Taiwan and ASEAN countries, with a particular focus on India. This event stands as a testament to Taiwan’s unwavering commitment to fostering and fortifying bilateral trade relationships with India.
TAITRA, the driving force behind Taiwan Expo India, expressed its satisfaction with the substantial increase in visitor turnout and the potential business opportunities that unfolded during the event. This surge in engagement has left exhibitors with a profound sense of the booming business prospects within India. TAITRA also announced that Taiwan Expo will continue to be a recurring event, with a warm invitation extended to Indian citizens to attend future editions in the coming year, notably in 2024.
In summary, the 6th edition of Taiwan Expo India 2023 has not only showcased the synergy between Taiwan and India but has also paved the way for substantial business opportunities. The Expo’s resounding success, coupled with its commitment to future editions, underscores Taiwan’s dedication to enhancing its trade relationship with India and strengthening its role in the ASEAN region.
