For buyer users, the newly implemented upgrades to Taiwantrade.com provide a mobile-friendly backend UI, push notifications for new leads, and instant FB Messenger business lead updates. For supplier users, the ONE TAITRA App now enables prompt inquiry notifications. Language localization is one of our continued efforts to establish deeper connections with our users. Currently, Taiwantrade.com supports 14 languages (including Indonesian, Vietnamese, Thai and French). Also, buyer-supplier interactions were strengthened through digital curation, event marketing, search engine marketing and Google Ads, which further attracted site visits and inquiries.

The events facilitated deeper bonding with the local markets.
The “Export and Import Trend Monitoring and Analysis” and “Potential Market Selecting” projects, sponsored by the Bureau of Foreign Trade (BOFT), involved the aggregation of major economic and international trade variables for the formulation of marketing strategies. Industrial data analysis reports and market insights were generated to facilitate the planning of overseas promotions and market selection processes, such as the heatmap analysis of export to Middle Eastern markets in all industries, and the export market analysis of the hand tools industry.
TAITRA provides data analytics via iTrade (itrade.taitra.org.tw) and customized service. TAITRA assisted companies and compiled analytic reports for various industry associations in Taiwan. The topics covered ranged from selecting potential high-performance markets, analysis of market rivals, to target market tariff comparisons. A “Potential Market Analysis Report” was also offered in visualized format, providing data on the top import markets, Taiwan export analysis, and a summary of market insights.
