Bureau of Foreign Trade invites female entrepreneurs from Taiwan and Australia to talk about women empowerment and its related business opportunities
The Bureau of Foreign Trade (BOFT) under the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) commissioned the Commerce Development Research Institute (CDRI) to organize and hold the Taiwan-Australia Women in Trade Business Leaders' Dialogue on November 23.

The objectives of this event were to deepen economic cooperation between Australia and Taiwan, as well as promote women's entrepreneurship and participation in foreign trade. Outstanding female entrepreneurs in the floral, wine, and green energy industries of Australia and Taiwan were invited to talk about the characteristics and advantages of women as business leaders, while emphasizing that awareness and promotion of gender equality in the workplace will help improve corporate governance and productivity.

Director General Cynthia Kiang of the BOFT stated in her opening remarks that Taiwan had achieved remarkable results in promoting women's empowerment and gender equality. Women in Taiwan have performed marvelously in various fields. Moreover, in the emerging field of wind power energy, there are more women working in the offshore wind industry in Taiwan compared to the global average and the Asia-Pacific average. As for orchids and wines, which are normally seen as traditional sectors, female entrepreneurs from Taiwan and Australia have gained remarkable success and made great achievements in foreign trade.

This dialogue exchanged views on the entrepreneurial spirit and factors for success of female business leaders in Australia and Taiwan. Both sides talked about taking full advantage of potential business opportunities that women can create for international economy and trade under the new normal during and after the pandemic.
