I trust you're all enjoying the fantastic Taiwan autumn weather and keep staying safe behind that mask.
Here's a quick rundown of what the Chamber has been up to during the autumn and what we all look forward to in November and December, before we send 2020 to the history books.
Early November we attended Business Sweden's very successful and well-visited 36th consecutive Sweden-Taiwan Joint Business Council in Grand Hyatt Taipei. Several members including Scania, Ericsson and Volvo were on the speaker stand. The meeting covered several topics on cooperation, which discussed the challenges and opportunities in smart transportation and digital healthcare, as well as smart cities and financial technology. In addition, the two sides emphasized their commitment to jointly build a more business-friendly environment, such as through transparent tax information, the recognition of Good Laboratory Operation data, and building general aviation relations.
We hosted a very well-visited webinar with the author Johan Nylander on his most recent book "The Epic Split - why made in China is going out of style", in fact we had to limit participation and will therefore facilitate a re-run in early January for those who missed it.
