The second Taiwan International Water Week (TIWW 2020) along with the third Circular Economy Taiwan (CE Taiwan) was jointly held at Taipei World Trade Center Hall 1, in Taipei, Taiwain, from September 24 to 26.
Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA), the organiser of the event said that although impacted by the COVID-19, this joint trade show was widely supported by all walks of life, as shown by the participation of a number of indicator units from the industries, the governments, the academia, and the research institutes, such as the Industrial Development Bureau of the Ministry of Economic Affairs, the Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI), GSD Technologies, FineTek, Advantech, JU-TIAN Cleantech, and SHUI MU International.
“As this joint trade show is expected to create the most business opportunities and a new green-gold value in the post-COVID-19 era, it is considered this year's most important professional industry exhibition for water resources and circular economy,” it added.
As the pandemic has been accelerating the digital transformation of global industries, TAITRA, as the organiser of the trade show, has also actively launched a number of digital services to help companies expand their global trade business opportunities. For instance, the "Water Week Middle East Business Opportunity Day", which is the first to debut, connects exhibitors and Middle East buyers by the use of cloud video conferencing services.
Meanwhile, the online and offline activities during this period included the online exhibition halls, the one-on-one purchasing video conferences, the global government procurement meetings, the W Stage popular product launches, and the "TIWW X CE Taiwan ON AIR" live show.
The last one is considered this year's most watched new project, as it enables those buyers who cannot visit the exhibition venues in person to vew the show as if they are on the scene.
In response to the Taiwan government's active promotion of forward-looking plans for the construction of water environment, TIWW takes the sustainable use of water resources as the main theme, under which data analysis, cloud control and other smart water technologies are utilised and various kinds of pumps, water quality monitors and waste and sewage treatment solutions (all of which are energy-saving, power-saving, and environment-friendly) are exhibited.
At the same time, under the"5+2 Industrial Innovation Plan, the industries will transform themselves from a linear economy of "mining, manufacturing, use, and disposal" to a circular economy with sustainable resources, the statement said.
As such, CE Taiwan wishes to guide enterprises to achieve sustainable development through the ESG (Environmental, Social, Corporate Governance) and 3R (reduce, reuse, recycle) strategies, so that they can not only present the cross-industry application of circular economy, the innovative business model, and the technological products featuring green energy and environmental protection, but also combine the two hot topics in the green industry to showcase the trend of generations of energy intelligence, energy saving, and innovation, it added.—TradeArabia News Service
