TAIPEI, TAIWAN: Due to global warming, energy-saving and carbon-reduction issues have been the focus of the world. Developing “green” information and communications technologies (ICT) as a result has become the core of national ICT development policies of many advanced countries.
In other words, green ICT will be the key for countries to remain competitive in the next wave of global competitions which will at the same time be the new motor for propelling economic recovery.
Taiwan’s strongest strength in developing green ICT lies in its solid foundation and complete supply chain of the ICT industry. Furthermore, Taiwan is ranked as the world number 6 and Asia’s number 2 country by IMD's 2010 World Competitiveness Yearbook in terms of the potential in utilizing green ICT to create competitive advantages.
Now, TAITRA, carrying the most abundant amount of sourcing information on Taiwan’s local suppliers, is launching a special sample product sourcing center--“Green ICT, Taiwan Lets You See!” for buyers to see clearly Taiwan’s outstanding Green ICT products. What’s more, not only can buyers have a variety of sample selections to order via PayPal, but they also get a chance to win shopping rebates, up to $600.
Taiwan—The “ICT Island” leads global green ICT industry
In recent years, with high-quality human resources, large amount of investment in equipment, and flexible, speedy integration capacity of the ICT industry clusters, Taiwan has become an indispensable link in the distribution of labor of the global ICT industry.
Taiwan, in addition, has been constantly cultivating new ICT talents, building Science Parks with thorough facilities, enhancing the ability to manage knowledge, and maintaining sufficient and relatively inexpensive capital, which altogether has made Taiwan into an “ICT Island.”
At present, as the challenges of global climate change as well as “green economy revolution” have forcefully driven the global ICT industry in the direction of green development, Taiwan especially leads the world in the manufacturing of solar cells and LED related products. In the first half of 2010 up to July, the gross investment volume in the LED and photovoltaic industries in Taiwan has already reached an outstanding US$16 million.
So, with the launch of the special sample product sourcing center--“Green ICT, Taiwan Lets You See!”, TAITRA allows all interested buyers to purchase Taiwan’s world-number-one Green ICT products via the easiest way.
The items collected in the sourcing center include consumer electronics and electrical products, electronic components and parts, computer hardware, software and peripherals, and communications products.
