From August 26 to 27, 2021, the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) in Johannesburg is organizing a virtual visit of a trade delegation from Taiwan for the Mauritian business community. This will give about 20 Taiwanese suppliers the opportunity to virtually meet with Mauritian companies looking for quality business partners and ready to diversify in a pandemic affected business environment. As physical trade shows have been postponed until further notice due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this virtual trade delegation is a unique opportunity for Mauritian companies.

21 Taiwanese suppliers have confirmed their participation. They are from sectors such as manufacturing, ICT, medical equipment, automotive and consumer products. These Taiwanese suppliers will be available, online, from August 26 to 27, 2021, for a limited number of meetings between 11am and 2pm (Mauritius time). Registration and participation in the virtual face-to-face sessions is free, with the option to attend multiple meetings. Email for registration for this meeting or visit
