EU-Taiwan Supply Chains Forum

The European Commission is pursuing the twin policy goals of the European Green Deal and the Digital Agenda in order to achieve sustainable economic development, while simultaneously strengthening the security of its supply chains so as to ensure the EU’s strategic autonomy. This creates a huge potential and opportunities for supply chain cooperation between Taiwan and the EU and for strengthening the security of European supply chains. The importance of like-minded partners in establishing resilient and diversified global supply chains has been critically highlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Taiwan, with its advanced position in sectors such as ICT, electronics, semiconductors, biotechnology, renewable energy and machine tools manufacturing, has also since long played a key role in the global supply chain.

The European Institute for Asian Studies (EIAS) and the Chinese International Economic Cooperation Association Taiwan (CIECA) are organizing this online forum to serve as a platform for Taiwanese and European entrepreneurs and businesses to enhance mutual supply chain cooperation and to boost investment, trade and technology exchanges between the industries of Taiwan and the EU, based on the experiences of enterprises such as FFG, SEMI, Delta, TPMIA, Giant, IMEC and Jan De Nul.
