Commission Chair Maggie Hart Stebbins will lead the trade mission from September 1-9, 2013 in an effort to generate opportunities for local companies to find customers and partners in Taiwan.
“Over the last couple of decades Taiwan has evolved into a Who’s Who location for multinational corporations to do their product research and development,” said Commission Chair Hart Stebbins. “Our New Mexico companies are developing the technologies they are looking for.”
The trade mission will be centered around SEMICON Taiwan, a large semiconductor tradeshow covering a variety of subsectors including 3D IC & Substrates, LEDs, Secondary Equipment, MEMS, and Green Management. Additionally, pre-qualified business development meetings will be arranged in Taipei based upon the specific requests of participating local companies in partnership with the State of New Mexico’s Greater China Trade Office. The trade mission is not limited to companies interested in SEMICON Taiwan.
“We formed the Trade Alliance less than a year ago and have already led thirteen local companies to foreign markets,” added Albuquerque Mayor Richard J. Berry. “That doesn’t even take into account the institutional partnerships that have been created and current foreign company recruitment leads that have been generated as a result of this program. We look forward to seeing more of these successes from Taiwan.”
Participating companies will benefit from a structured business agenda; discounted airfare, lodging and ground transportation; courtesy tradeshow registration; and customized business matchmaking.
“If you are interested in touring Taiwan, this isn’t the trip for you,” noted Bernalillo County Economic Development Director Mayling Armijo. “If you believe there are business opportunities for your company in Taiwan, we want to help you find them.”
