Date published 2020-12-09

Deemed the Oscars for Taiwanese industries, the 29th Taiwan Excellence Awards were held this afternoon at the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center, with Minister Wang Mei-Hua awarding the highest honors - the Taiwan Excellence Gold and Silver Awards - to 30 businesses (please refer to the attachment.) Director General, Chiang Wen-Jo, also bestowed commendations on all the winners of the prestigious award along with TAITRA Chairman, Huang Chih-Fang, who was in attendance to congratulate the winners. This year, a total of 252 businesses received the honor of winning the Taiwan Excellence Award and almost 500 esteemed guests were present.

During his speech, Minister Wang stated that the award-winning firms are models for all of Taiwan’s industries as they continue to pursue innovation and technological breakthroughs to not only give momentum to their respective industries, but also to raise the overall competitiveness of the country. This year, small and medium-sized enterprises accounted for a record-breaking high, 60%, of award winners. This is a great testament to the innovation and R&D capabilities of small and medium-sized Taiwanese enterprises. The MOEA’s Taiwan Industry Image Enhancement Project aims to help award-winning companies break into international markets, as well as promote their brand images after the winners of the Gold, Silver and Excellence Awards have been selected.

TAITRA Chairperson Huang remarked that technological development is like a vaccine against trade wars. With COVID-19 accelerating global digitalization this year, firms need to keep pace with the latest technological advances and make wide use of digital tools to effectively continue their commercial activities and minimize the impact of the pandemic. By carrying out the Ministry of Economic Affairs’ Taiwan Industry Image Enhancement Project, TAITRA uses digital marketing in addition to both virtual and physical exhibitions abroad, as well as offline and online shopping platforms to overcome the difficulties and restrictions caused by the global pandemic, thereby helping firms acquire further international business opportunities. TAITRA also provides customized digital transition services for the winners, using virtual technologies and digital tools to showcase the huge potential of Taiwanese industries and continue their progression toward global market penetration.

This year, 433 products from 252 businesses received the Taiwan Excellence Award, with just 3% of the products being selected for the Gold and Silver Awards. The winners represent the essence of innovative value in Taiwanese industry, in information, communication, medical devices, smart machines, fitness equipment and transportation. A few prime examples include Johnson Health Tech, which uses mirror reflections with exclusive motion-detection functions for their smart virtual training courses, so that people can enjoy their workouts at home. The Digital Eye Anterior Camera from Medimaging Integrated Solution Incorporated incorporates IoT technology to develop light, easy-to-carry ophthalmological diagnosis devices, allowing doctors visiting patients living in remote areas to optimize the efficiency of their visits by reducing the weight of their equipment. The aero bikes of Merida are equipped with brake plate radiators on both the front and back wheels, which maximizes cooling efficiency. Cyclists can hit their brakes at high speeds without losing control, thereby guaranteeing their safety.

“Looking Backward and Forward: Lecture on Aesthetics of Taiwan Excellence” will be held in the morning on the day of the awards ceremony. The following speakers have been invited to share their perspectives and ideas on digital, cultural and design aesthetics: Director Wang Tsung-Hsin, innovative digital artist, TAICCA President Hu Ching-Fang, the first writer to lead TAICCA in shaping the national culture brand, and Professor Kuan Cheng-Neng, a long-time devotee of the cultivation of creative talent in Taiwan, as well as the Chairperson of the Taiwan Excellence Award judges.
