Tai­wan joins African trade show held in Johannesburg

The China Post - - LOCAL -

Eight Tai­wanese com­pa­nies took part in the South­ern African In­ter­na­tional Trade Ex­hi­bi­tion (SAITEX) held ear­lier this week in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Now in its 22nd year, the an­nual event brought to­gether more than 1,000 ex­hibitors from 51 coun­tries this year and drew over 16,000 buy­ers.

The prod­ucts ex­hib­ited by the Tai­wanese com­pa­nies in­cluded tire man­u­fac­tur­ing equip­ment, mo­bile power packs, adult and baby di­a­pers, com­puter pe­riph­eral de­vices, knit­ting ma­chines, un­in­ter­rupt­ible power sup­plies, trol­leys, plat­form trail­ers, tool cab­i­nets, shoes and socks.

Since the start of this year, South Africa has im­ple­mented strict elec­tric­ity ra­tioning mea­sures, mak­ing var­i­ous power sup­ply prod­ucts very pop­u­lar. The trol­leys also at­tracted the at­ten­tion of many buy­ers.

Ac­cord­ing to Lee Wen-sheng, head of the Tai­wanese del­e­ga­tion, although this was the first time Tai­wan had taken part in the ex­hi­bi­tion, busi­ness was bet­ter than ex­pected.
