The annual Taiwan International Orchid Show kicked off Saturday in the southern city of Tainan, and is expected to generate export orders worth more than NT$10 billion (US$306.39 million) over a three-year period starting from 2016.
Su Mao-hsiang , chief secretary at the Agriculture and Food Agency under the Cabinet-level Council of Agriculture, revealed the export predictions Friday.
He said exports of Taiwan-grown orchids have been growing over the years, and the volume is expected to continue to increase this year, with the United States set to ease restrictions on the imports of dancing-doll orchids in March. [FULL STORY]
