A message from our CEO...
Dear members, stakeholders and friends of SCCT.

It’s been an interesting month at the Chamber. Online webinars on Leadership in Times of Turbulence with Ms Ulrika Brunner from Inspire Group and one called Let’s Open Up for Business: the future of business mobility withMr Magnus Hultman, CEO at Safeture. We have also conducted a number of company visits to discuss Chamber support as well as attended and co-hosted several business events.
Our 2020 Annual General Meeting took place on September 24th, in Henry’s bar at The Sherwood hotel. This was our first physical Chamber event since December 2019 when COVID-19 struck down and it’s safe to say that expectations on this event were high. We saw a record turn-out and we’re very glad that that so many of our members could make it. The event turned out to be a great success with many staying to mingle until late that night. In addition to going through the formal agenda covering previous years activity report, finances and electing this years Board of Directors and board of Supervisors we were treated to a speech by Mr Ben Blanchard from Reuter’s about the upcoming election in the United States, and what effects own trade, political stability and simmering regional tensions this may have on Taiwan.

We also had the great pleasure of having Mr Daniel T.C. Liao visit the AGM as our guest of honor. Mr Liao who was Taiwan’s former representative to Sweden between 2016-2020 was awarded with an honorary lifetime membership in the Swedish Chamber of Commerce Taipei and a warm round of applauds for his efforts, support and very important contributions to the development Taiwan-Sweden relations.

Below are the elected Directors and Supervisors headed up by Mr Hugo Asplund who continues his tenure as Chairman of the Chamber from previous year. We very much look forward to work with you all during this coming year and an especially warm welcome to our two newest Directors; Mr Glenn Lio and Ms Matilda Guthartz Pålsson. Julia and I very much look forward to engage with you all!

Upcoming events
Seminar: The Epic Split
SCCT Mentorship Program
The Swedish Chamber of Commerce Taipei is pleased to present to you a free of charge online session with Johan Nylander, author of the newly published book "The Epic Split – Why 'Made in China' is going out of style", offering you a balanced look at the deep set of problems facing US-China relations, and is particularly trenchant in laying the difficulties companies will face in choosing sides in this titanic struggle.

We will also discuss supply chain movements out of China, including both lower end and now increasingly higher end manufacturing, an inevitable trend that has been accelerated by the trade war and pandemic.

The Young Professionals’ mentorship program is a new initiative to connect young talents with already established professionals in Taiwan. The main objectives are threefold:
  1. To give opportunities for young professionals to develop knowledge and skills needed to reach their professional goals, to receive advice and guidance through communications with their mentor.
  2. To give opportunities for established professionals to connect with young talents who have a strong connection to Sweden and receive a mentorship training session with a professional coach. 
  3. To further develop a network of professionals in Taiwan.
