On 22 June 2021, the European Economic and Trade Office (EETO), the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT), the Japan-Taiwan Exchange Association (JTEA), and Taiwan's Ministry of Economic Affairs, together organized a Forum on Tech Supply Chain Partnership. EETO Head of Office Filip Grzegorzewski, AIT Director Brent Christensen, JTEA Deputy Representative Mitsuaki Hoshino, and Taiwan's Economic Minister Mei-Hua Wang spoke during the event concerning the importance of enhancing tech supply chain cooperation among like-minded partners.  They recognized that no single economy can produce everything it needs, and it is in their common interest to ensure allies and partners have resilient supply chains.

Global supply chains are changing. Countries and economies around the world strive for greater resilience and security of their tech supply chains. The COVID-19 pandemic has further magnified the challenges. The organizers invited representatives from government, industry, academia and research institutes in the EU, US, Japan and Taiwan to share best business practices and to identify the dynamics concerning global value chains. Speakers highlighted each roadmap to strengthen supply chain efficiency and resilience by referring to experiences in the various regions and industries.
