The 2015 Taiwan Excellence campaign aims to further increase awareness for Taiwan’s products among Filipinos by letting them experience and appreciate how these products can make their life easier. Featuring the “Excellent Lifestyles” concept, the 2015 campaign showcases a wide variety of world-class products, which will reveal to Filipinos how Taiwan products have evolved to conform to world-class, high quality standards.
Last Year, 2014, The Philippines is the third largest export partner of Taiwan among ASEAN countries, amounting USD 9.53 billion, and the 11th largest trade partner of Taiwan in the world, with bilateral trade, amounting to USD 11.6 billion. Convinced with the strong potential of Taiwan products in the Philippine market, the Bureau of Foreign Trade (BOFT) under The Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA), Taiwan, and the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA), which backed the successful 2014 roadshow, are again supporting the campaign on its second round in the Philippines.
To further reinforce the Taiwan Excellence campaign here in the Philippines, new endorser Maja Salvador will be participating in all of the activities, which will be open to all Filipino consumers as well.
“We witnessed the warm reception to Taiwan-made products last year, which is why we are undertaking this campaign again. In doing this, we hope that more Filipinos will buy our products and receive the assurance that they are getting the best and highest quality products. Through Taiwan Excellence, we want Filipino consumers to make educated decisions about their purchases and experience the benefits and superior quality of our products and brands,” said Yu-Wei Hsiao, Deputy Executive Director of TAITRA.
