2024 INVESTMENT-FOCUSED U.S. PAVILION AT E-MOBILITY TAIWAN TRADE SHOW
APRIL 17 - 20, 2024
Taiwan as an investment partner, now one of the top 10 fastest-growing sources of FDI in the United States. With over $22.4 billion in stock of FDI in the United States, U.S. affiliates of Taiwan companies support over 22,100 jobs in the United States.
According to the U.S. International Trade Administration, Taiwan holds the position of the 8th largest source of automotive parts imports to the United States, with an import value exceeding $3.5 billion. In light of supply chain disruptions during the pandemic and the recent enactment of the Inflation Reduction Act and Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, this trade deficit presents a substantial opportunity to encourage Taiwanese automotive supply chain investment in the U.S.
The U.S. Pavilion is specifically designed to bring together states and regions focusing on the development of their Electric Vehicle/Autonomous Vehicle supply chain. To make your booth even more attractive, we highly recommend including procurement representatives—preferably high-ranking decision-makers—from Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), Tier 1 & Tier 2 suppliers, and Charging Service Providers. Additionally, the show organizer offers a buyer sponsorship program, further enhancing the appeal of buyers’ participation.
