Taiwanese Business Association of New Zealand and Taiwanese Business Association of New Zealand Junior Chapter hosted their monthly meetup in the evening of April 26 in Auckland. The gathering was hosted by Association chief, Manna Lai. Mr. Chung-Hsing Chou, Director General of Taipei Economic and Cultural office in Auckland, his colleagues in the office, former directors of TBANZ, and members of TBANZ's Junior Chapter-totaling over 100 attendees-graced the get-together.
In the opening remarks, Lai stressed that the Association has plans to strengthen bonds between the members in the year to come; and with the government's New Southbound Policy in place, the Association would set up a databank that details the backgrounds and business strengths of the members, organize meet-and-greets to encourage business exchange opportunities, and expand possible business alliances among the members for the good of the Association. Lai also gave a lowdown on all the events to be held in July, such as a Film Festival, and invited all to attend.
Mr. Chou praised Lai for the great number of events planned on the social calendar in the coming year. He also said that as services speed up for the New Southbound policy, the Association office is excited about working even more closely with local business alliances and their Taiwanese members, to create more win-win's in the business community.
The organizer invited several experts to share their experience with starting their investments and building startups in New Zealand, who expressed great faith in Made-in-Taiwan products. Mr. Chou also talked about the work of Overseas Credit Guarantee Fund (Taiwan) and encouraged business aspirants to take advantage of the Fund's resources. Ideas and possible collaboration opportunities were discussed with excitement during the event.
