Taiwan joins African trade show held in Johannesburg
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.
