‘Let’s Connect’ was a networking dinner in collaboration with the Taipei Economic & Cultural Office (TECO) based in Brunei; hosted and organised by Creativo Sdn Bhd at the Mutiara Ballroom, Radisson Hotel in the capital last Tuesday. The event began with welcoming remarks by guest of honour and TECO representative Andrew Lee.

“Made in Taiwan (MIT) represents research and development, innovation and creativity, and cutting-edge technology,” said Lee.

Taiwan also prefers to establish its own businesses. This, he added, is one of the driving forces in making Taiwan “a Kingdom of Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and MSM”. They employ a nearly nine million workforce and generates USD400 billion every year. They are always looking for new opportunities, exploring new territories and markets, and seeking the pursuit of excellence. “And this is why they are here today. As I’ve emphasised on several occasions, Taiwan has spared no efforts to further promote and enhance its relations with Brunei in different areas. I am very proud that my office is an active promoter and facilitator to make it a reality,” Lee said.

‘Let’s Connect’ was designed to strengthen relationships and networks between businessmen and women from Brunei and Taiwan in industries such as tourism, retail, Halal, healthcare and textiles.

Creativo and TECO hope that the event will promote and strengthen business relationships between Taiwan and Brunei companies. ‘Let’s Connect’ attracted over 40 attendees from Taiwan participating in the 24th Consumer Fair.
