During the mission one of the largest Smart City-events in Asia will be visited: the Smart City Summit and Expo in Taiwan. Klaas Verschuure, vice mayor of Utrecht, will be leading this mission.

Delegation members

The Dutch delegation consists of innovative Dutch companies looking to initiate export to Taiwan and Asia, or to boost existing export. The mission will be joined by ten companies, seven of whom come from Utrecht Region and have developed innovative urban solutions.

Smart City Summit

Visiting the Smart City Summit is part of the mission. More than 30,000 visitors will meet each other during this event with its many forums, matchmaking and network events.

Taiwan’s Key Role

Taiwan plays a key role in the global high-tech supply chain and is thé place for electronics production. Due to its central location in Asia, Taiwan also functions as a hub for foreign companies towards the larger Asian market, Chinese mainland in particular.

As a gateway to the Asian market, Taiwan is perfectly positioned for Dutch companies to enter into strategic partnerships with Taiwanese tech companies in or to bring Smart City products and services to the Taiwanese/Asian market.
