Taiwan Excellence Campaign 2015 showcases the best of Taiwanese brands, with Maja Salvador as campaign endorser

 

With the theme “Excellent Lifestyles”, the Taiwan Excellence 2015 campaign aims to show Filipinos how Taiwan products have evolved to conform to world class standards. Actress Maja Salvador has been announced as the campaign’s endorser.

Convinced of the strong potential of Taiwan products in the Philippines, the Bureau of Foreign Trade (BOFT, Taiwan) and the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA), which backed up Taiwan Excellence 2014, are again supporting the campaign on its second run. The Philippines was the third largest export partner of Taiwan among ASEAN countries in 2014, amounting to USD 9.53 billion. For the same year, the country was also the 11th largest trade partner of Taiwan in the world, with bilateral trade amounting to USD 11.6 billion.
