On 14 June at the FTA Conference, Unleash Opportunity, FTA announced a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) is signed with Importers and Exporters Association of Taipei (IEAT). This year is a reason for celebration for both organisations: 2017 marks the 40-year anniversary of FTA and IEAT reflects on 70 years of promoting trade.
‘’As we celebrate historical milestones for both of our associations, I wish for our agreement to work together to stand out as a defining moment of the years to come in shaping our common objectives of supporting trade and economic cooperation in our relations,’’ said FTA Director General, Christian Ewert.
FTA is pleased to further collaborate in the areas of trade and investment as well as information sharing and other commercially orientated activities to the benefit of members from both organisations. Following a discussion to combine efforts that began in 2015, this MoU will strengthen collaboration between actors that create critical links between buyers and producers.
Taiwan remains an important hub for many importers and exporters facilitating global trade along our members’ supply chain. FTA will continue to strengthen its network, capitalising on outreach in the Greater China region.
