Taiwan Hosts COMPUTEX, The World's Largest Computer Exhibition, Highlighting Its Global Leadership In AI

Published: Fri 7 Jun 2024 04:46 AM
The leading global AloT and startup exhibition COMPUTEX 2024 is being grandly held in Taiwan this week. Just like Asia's largest smart city forum was successfully held in Taiwan this March, COMPUTEX is already the world's largest computer exhibition and is also held in Taiwan. This year's COMPUTEX focuses on "Connecting AI" as the main theme have attracted a total of 1,500 companies from 36 countries and 50,000 domestic and international industry experts to visit. The largest number of CEOs in history, including CEOs from Nvidia, AMD, INTEL, etc. all give keynote speeches in the forum. This shows that democratic Gcountries and industrial partners are very keen on engaging with Taiwan.
Taiwan produces 90% of the world's high-end chips and is responsible for about two-thirds of the world's artificial intelligence server production. In IMD's "2023 World Competitiveness Yearbook", Taiwan ranks sixth in global competitiveness, which once again highlights Taiwan's huge capacity in global economic, trade and high-tech development. Taiwan President Lai Ching-te just took office on May 20 this year. While he is committed to maintaining the status quo across the Taiwan Strait, his “Action Innovation AI Cabinet” also focuses on building Taiwan into an “AI island”, intends to remain a vanguard of AI advancements, using AI to fuel innovation across a broad range of sectors. We believe with Taiwan’s advantages in semiconductors, information communications, smart technologies and AI computing, Taiwan continues to be important and indispensable stakeholder in the global strategic industry supply chain as well as next generation technology advancements.
As CEO of Nvidia Jensen Huang lauded at COMPUTEX, “Taiwan is a steadfast pillar of the world. Together we ignited a renaissance for our industry.” We see a clear trend that international partners need Taiwan and want to deepen industrial cooperation with Taiwan. This is also the result of Taiwan's exports continuing to grow at double digits, the stock market has grown by 20% to be the top of Asian stocks, and foreign capital continues to pour into Taiwan. Even if countries establish diplomatic relations with China without compromising their mutually beneficial cooperation and exchanges with Taiwan, the "one-China policy" of various countries is obviously different from China's own "one-China principle." Taiwan welcomes deepening cooperation and exchanges with international democratic partners. As we charge forward, our collective efforts create a smart and convenient life, battle diseases and natural disasters, and make the world a better and more prosperous place.
