The Budapest Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI) led a business delegation to Taiwan from March 26 to April 2, 2023, aiming to participate in the Smart City Expo exhibition and other professional events. Headed by General Vice President Mr. Ádám Balog, Secretary-General Mr. Ákos Csókay, Vice President of International and Foreign Economic Cabinet Mr. Péter Keszthelyi, and Head of International Relations’ Office Mr. Péter Babák, the delegation of 10 Hungarian companies sought to facilitate partnerships for Hungarian enterprises in Taiwan and enhance institutional relationships.

The Taipei Computer Association - who is the main organiser of the Taiwanese expo - ensured accommodations and local transfers for the entire delegation. The preparation of the program involved coordination between the Taipei Representation Office in Budapest (TRO), the Hungarian Trade Office in Taipei, and the Neumann János Nonprofit Ltd.

During the trip, the delegation engaged in the Smart City Expo exhibitions in Taipei and Kaohsiung, the CIECA (Chinese International Economic Cooperation Association) networking event, and a business dinner organized by the Taiwan-ASEAN Business Council. Key representatives also attended discussions with the Taiwanese Industrialists and Traders Association, including Mr. Keszthelyi Péter jointly with a representative from MGYOSZ.

In terms of institutional relationships, CIECA organized a high-quality networking event with significant partners aligning with the delegation's business profiles. They announced a reciprocal visit to Hungary planned for June 2023. The Taiwanese Industrialists and Traders Association also stood as a significant step forward in institutional ties, offering a broad spectrum of industry representatives and potential collaborations with Hungarian entities.

The business delegation to Taiwan was a triumph, showcasing effective networking and promising opportunities. The members of the delegation positively assessed the business trip. Several companies found potential partners, while some even secured concrete contracts. The participants also forged close business relationships with each other.
