The Ministry of Economic Affairs presented trophies and certificates to several Taiwanese companies established decades ago in appreciation of their valuable contribution to industrial and commercial development as well as job creation in Taiwan over the years.
MOEA Deputy Minister Jong-Chin Shen offered congratulations, and the awards were presented by Industrial Development Bureau Deputy Director General Leu Jang-hwa at the 70th Industrial Festival held at the Taipei International Convention Center on Nov. 9, 2016.
Trophies and certificates were presented to five enterprises founded more than 50 years ago and to 364 firms established over 40 years ago.
The annual presentation was launched following enactment by the MOEA in November 2007 of a set of guidelines on recognizing the contributions to Taiwan’s economy and society made by companies set up more than 40 years ago. The guidelines were revised in August 2009 to include enterprises that have been operating for more than five decades.
Each year, cities and counties around Taiwan nominate companies that meet the eligibility requirements for the certificates and awards, Eligibility requirements include no major industrial safety, health, environmental or related accidents having occurred at the company in the most recent two years. Qualified companies are then presented with the certificates and trophies at the Industrial Festival.
The theme of the 70th session of the meeting this year was “vigorous rise of industry, creating a new situation.” ROC President Tsai Ing-wen and Premier Lin Chuan also delivered speeches at the event.
