There so much to love about Taiwan and get all excited as this year marks the very first time Taiwan Expo 2019 will be held in Penang. Taiwan Expo has been held successfully for the past 2 years in Kuala Lumpur and this year, it makes its way to Setia SPICE Convention Centre , Penang on the 5 & 6 July 2019.

development roadmap to help foster closer partnerships between Malaysia and Taiwan. The six
categories include :
