2006 APEC-TIC Workshop
2006 APEC-TIC Workshop was held by Chinese Taipei and Talentrepreneur Innovation & Collaboration Association International in ChienTan Oversea Youth Activity Center, from August 28th to 31st. It was to give APEC member economies the opportunity to exchange ideas, share business operation experience and further ally with international organizations. Through this workshop, all participants of APEC member economies presented successful case models in IT technology, biotechnology and humanity industries, gained multi-lateral collaborative opportunities, and at the same time encouraged the youth entrepreneurship and innovation among APEC region.
This year, for formal delegates from APEC region, there are 133 delegates from 15 member economies (Hong Kong China, Indonesia, Japan, Republic of Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, The Republic of the Philippines, The Russian Federation, Singapore, Chinese Taipei, Thailand, United States of America, and Viet Nam), who joined full-round session presentation and discussion. A press conference was arranged on 28th August, 2006, to divulge the opening of APEC-TIC Workshop and to introduce the co-sponsors member economies (Malaysia, Mexico, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam) and fellow member economies to the press.
As a one of the most distinguishing features of Taiwan culture, Indigenous culture was selected as the core element of 2006 APEC-TIC Workshop this year, on behalf of the tradition, enthusiasm, and love of Taiwan. We welcomed every honorable delegate by giving them an Indigenous bead as present, standing for warm regards from host member economy. In addition, welcome party, farewell party, conference room decoration and exhibition are all arranged by Taiwan Indigenous Cultural Enterprise Development Association, to present delegates their beauty, richness and strength.
Through the organized speeches and hot discussion we exchanged successful business models and innovation policies among APEC member economies. The exchanges of ideas were very effective during the sub-group discussions which gave Chinese Taipei a good basis for the preparation for the future international Workshops or Forum.
There are several conclusions reached by delegates to improve the multilateral collaboration within APEC region, including the two most important and highlighted: documentation and mentoring program. For the former one, harmonization on documentation package is the base of corporation within APEC region. For the later issue, proposed by Singapore and Japan official delegates, will be presented to APEC secretariat as the main issue this year.
We already received positive feedback from participants. They complimented our kind hospitality and beauty of Taiwan culture. Thanks to their support and participation, we successfully created a platform and collaboration system of innovation and entrepreneurship among APEC member economies. Most importantly, by corporation in the conference and dances in the party, we did tighten our friendship and demonstrate the union.
