“The MICE agencies in Taiwan particularly travel agencies, hotels and conference/exhibition companies are famous for their creativity and innovation. We hope more companies in the Philippines would come to join us and learn about Taiwan’s vast MICE opportunities,” says Ms. Su.

The event in Manila also targets Taiwanese companies operating in the Philippines and who may bring their employees to Taiwan for meetings, trainings and leisure/travel. With this program, Taiwan hopes to bring more MICE visitors from the Philippines.

MICE initiatives have helped bolster Philippines -Taiwan relations in recent years. Taiwan has been among the country’s top five sources of investments. A major investor throughout Southeast Asia, Taiwan has made a strong imprint in a wide variety of industries in the Philippines among them electronics, telecommunications, information technology, and construction.

According to statistics released by the International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA), Taiwan ranked fourth in Asia, exceeding Singapore, Thailand, and India in 2015.
