Taipei, Jan. 26 (CNA) In a bid to tap the full potential of women entrepreneurs, Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) is set to organize for the first time a trade promotion delegation exclusively composed of female entrepreneurs this year.
The delegation is scheduled to visit Australia, New Zealand and Indonesia as part of TAITRA's efforts to help women better explore foreign markets and gain a greater role in Taiwan's foreign trade in line with the government's policy and a World Trade Organization (WTO) declaration, TAITRA said.
The three countries are covered by the government's New Southbound Policy, which has been broached by the administration of President Tsai Ing-wen after she assumed office in May 2016, to boost two-way trade and investment with countries in Southeast Asia, South Asia as well as Australia and New Zealand.
The reason why these countries were selected is simply because there have been relatively few promotions targeting them, TAITRA said. [FULL STORY]
