With 239 companies on more than 17,000m2, it is number 2 in the list of exhibitors.
For years, Taiwan has been the world's seventh largest producer of machine tools and accessories. The country's machinery exports reach a volume of around $ 40 billion a year. A new record on which exports to Germany accounted for 3.7 percent in 2017. So it is understandable that in its key market, Europe, with its key industries this year, is showing a huge presence at the world's EMO trade fair with its key industries. With a total of 239 exhibitors on more than 17,000 square meters of exhibition space, the country is showing its development potential in the field of smart machinery implemented in recent years and clearly positions itself with its high-tech innovations as a counterpart to the local solutions of Industry 4.0 German machine manufacturers. In the first place, the success is not in direct competition. Instead, the formula for success is cooperation and cooperation with German providers. An image transfer from the successful brand "Made in Germany" could thus further enhance the perception of "Made in Taiwan" in the future. "Taiwan is now an equal partner," said Walter Yeh, President and CEO of Taipei's Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA).

For this reason, Siemens Taiwan signed an agreement to cooperate with the Fair Friend Group (FFG), currently the largest Taiwanese investor in Germany, at EMO 2017 in Hanover during the second German-Taiwanese Smart Machinery Forum. The objective of Taiwan is clear: machine builders are to develop apps for controlling themselves in the future and, above all, to network with each other via the cloud. Bush Hsieh of Chumpower Machinery speaks of a "competitive ecosystem" that needs to be set up.
In 2018, the Taiwanese machinery industry increased production to a record $ 1.2 trillion (around $ 2.74 billion), partly due to a 7.2% year-over-year increase in exports. At the same time, Taiwan exported $ 4.565 billion of machine tools and components, an increase of8.28% over the same period last year. Taiwan is the world's fourth largest exporter of machine tools and components and has exported an average of $ 4 billion over the last few years from a network of more than 1,000 precision machine manufacturers and over 10,000 downstream suppliers.
TAITRA will be presenting itself in Hall 09 on Stand E 08 as the central point of contact.
