This will be a friendly match with TEGC winners from Taiwan, Malaysia, Philippines and Thailand and will make them experience gaming like never before.
Speaking of the innovative vehicle, Mr. Herben Wu, Director of Taipei World Trade Center Liaison Office in New Delhi, said, “In the past two years, we have reached 14 lakh people across India. People have shown such an overwhelming response that it encouraged us to bring out the much bigger third edition of the TE Rig. This year, there are many more tech products – each one of them bearing the hallmark of Taiwan Excellence.”
Echoing his thoughts, H.E. Ambassador Tien Chung-Kwang, Representative of Taipei Economic and Cultural Centre (TECC), “The relations between India and Taiwan have seen an upward growth in the past few years.
