Established in 1998 in Manchester, the company specializes in supplying computer hardware such as cases, monitors, printers, power supplies and other peripherals to the trade, system integrator and education sectors.
Tsai is from Taiwan, a country that manufactures a large percentage of the world's computer components. The company's close relationships with its suppliers has made it successful since the beginning and it has twice been ranked among the top 50 fastest-growing companies by Technology Fast 50.
The Parliamentary Review? is an indispensable guide to industry best practice, which demonstrates how sector leaders have responded to challenges in the political and economic environment.
This year's Review combines political commentary from leading journalists, with sector-specific insight from secretaries of state, ministers and members of Parliament,?and features forewords by British Prime Minister Theresa May.
The Review? is sent to over 500,000 leading business executives, policy makers and other relevant individuals.
In an interview with CNA, Tsai said the company was honored to be featured in the Review and that it was a recognition of the hard work of the company's staff.
Tsai said few Asian companies have received inclusion in the Parliamentary Review before, and this is the first time a Taiwanese company has been selected as a best practice representative.
Comments Off on Taipei-Taiwan’s Tourism Bureau is promoting mountain tourism at the 4-day Taipei International Travel Fair that began Friday.
The bureau is focusing on five north-south mountain ranges — the Central Mountain, Xueshan, Yushan, Alishan and the Coastal Mountain ranges — in its pavilion at the fair, said bureau Deputy Director-General Chang Shi-chung (???).
Chang said there will be various exhibitions and forums on the mountains of Taiwan, as well as its unique cultural features such as historic trails and aboriginal lifestyles.
Taiwan is preparing to market 2020 as the Year of Mountain Tourism, after its efforts to position the country as an important international mountaineering destination in July, when the government allowed public access to the island’s national parks.
Previously, people who wanted to visit restricted “ecological protected areas” in Taiwan’s national parks had to apply for permits from both the National Police Agency and the Construction and Planning Agency.
Now, however, the Construction and Planning Agency has launched a new mountain permit application portal that requires mountain visitors to apply for only one permit and provides fast-track processing to expedite applications, the bureau said.
Much of Taiwan is covered by mountains, and it has 268 mountains of over 3,000 meters, according to the Tourism Bureau website.
That environment has made hiking and mountain climbing one of the favorite pastimes of Taiwan residents.
The number of permits issued to Taiwanese citizens and foreign nationals for access to trails in Yushan, Taroko and Shei Pa national parks has risen from 153,736 in 2016 to 187,053 in 2017 and 201,526 in 2018, according to Construction and Planning Agency figures.
In 2018, foreign nationals accounted for 7.24 percent of the permits issued.
There will be around 1,700 booths from 60 countries at the fair, to be held Nov. 8-11 at the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center.
The fair, the largest of its kind in Taiwan, will feature South Korean and Japanese tourism operators amid growing local interest in travel to those countries.
