TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Taiwan and France jointly organized the “French Tech 6749395Culture 2006” event Wednesday and Thursday in Taipei City.

Culture Minister Hung Meng-chi, French representative in Taiwan Benoit Guidee, Greater Avignon president Jean-Marc Roubaud and a host of Taiwanese and French experts were present to lend their support to this example of French creativity and technology.

For several years, experts have predicted that France would host Europe’s version of “Silicon Valley,” providing lessons for Taiwan from its conjunction of fashion design, culture and history, arts and esthetics.

Hung expressed the hope that Taiwan could learn from France’s experience. The French success story shows that combining culture and technology does not push cultural development into a corner, but adds to its value, he said. Hung said he had the program at work during a visit to France last year.     [FULL  STORY]
