October 17, Mumbai:For the third consecutive year, Taiwan Excellence is participating in the Smart Asia – Expo & Summit 2019 where people from different industries will converge to discuss innovative ideas and technology to improve their cities and communities. Driving the business of smart systems, Taiwan Excellence is showcasing cutting-edge technologies, real-world solutions and proven strategies that are needed to build more livable, workable and sustainable cities.

The event, being held between October 17 and 19, will focus on Smart City Solutions, Smart Technology Applications, City Development Products and Services.
For years now, Taiwan Excellence has been known to provide smart solutions that take a holistic look at the innovations in technology and infrastructure. This year, Taiwan Excellence’s Pavilion is receiving an even bigger response thanks to its display of a wide variety of smart services that are efficient, sustainable, accessible and affordable. The organization is displaying various products and brands in smart ICT, smart healthcare, IoT solutions, smart gaming gadgets and smart-life devices industries. With some unique offerings, the products cover the entire spectrum of smart and digital automation – from simple sensors to intelligent solutions, from what is feasible today to the vision of a fully digitalized industrial world. The focus remains on practical solutions for smart living.

Taiwan Excellence pavilion has many crowd pulling products. The UTX -3117 is a plug & play IoT gateway to simplify deployment with multi-connectivity and IoT software integration which is ideal for smart city, smart retail, smart energy, and industry 4.0 solutions. The Opro9 smart Air Purifier is another highlight. The purifier takes a non-traditional approach to air cleaning, with a water-based system that is designed to “wash” the air by absorbing impurities and releasing negative ions. Also, on display is the Buder Under Sink Hot Water Dispenser that is environment friendly and comes with an energy efficient design.
Taiwan Excellence has already been undertaking a range of initiatives in India to share its expertise when it comes to smart solutions by contributing to various projects of the Indian government including Smart Cities mission, Make in India, Skills India and Digital India. India has been benefitting to a great extent from these contributions especially at a time when according to estimates, by the year 2050, the population in Indian cities will touch 60% of total population. To accommodate this extensive urbanization, India needs to find smarter ways to manage complexities, reduce expenses, increase efficiency, and improve the quality of urban life. Thisyear, Taiwan Excellence participated in two major events in India including the Vibrant Gujarat Summit and Taiwan Expo.
Speaking about the Expo and Taiwan Excellence’s consecutive successful participation in it, Alex Pen, Director of Taipei World Trade Center Liaison office Mumbai said, “Taiwan Excellence has been redefining what it means for a city to be “smart” with our innovations and solutions. The feedback has been very encouraging again this year. We see a lot of growth opportunities and this Expo is offering a chance to explore collaboration with different industry players. Taiwanese companies have very high R&D capabilities and good quality control and excellent innovation. Smart Asia is a great opportunity to engage with many professionals and expose our innovative solutions across various industries.”
Platforms like Smart Asia are also likely to augment the trade and bilateral relations between India and Taiwan. The current trade volume between India and Taiwan is to the tune of $7 billion. In the last 10 years, the cumulative investment by companies from Taiwan in India was $700 million. Taiwan is looking forward to participate in more platforms to enhance the ties between the two countries.
