Taipei, Sept. 25 (CNA) The two-day Oktoberfest celebration kicked off in Taipei on Friday, giving German companies and their business partners a rare chance to rub elbows at a time when social gatherings are temporarily banned in many countries due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The annual German Trade Office (GTO) Oktoberfest is in its fifth year after the inaugural event in 2016.

The opening night was attended by around 100 guests, including German expatriates, officials from Taiwan's Foreign Ministry and business people.
