The products are displayed in seven pavilions: Taiwan excellent, Green products, Taiwan Health care, Taiwan Tourism, Design Power, Taiwan Agriculture and Education and Career.

Along with the exhibition, the organizers will also organize seminars about the latest development of Taiwanese ICT products, medical development and design powers, Chiu said.
