Both markets for application and service scale in Taiwan will reach NT29.7B and NT13.3B respectively in the same year. In view of such a huge demand, the Taiwan government is also aggressively working on ICT infrastructure deployment for better metropolitan management and residential life, so as to catch up with the ideal of being “Intelligent Cities”. So apart from exhibiting in the Taiwan Pavilion, the delegation will also announce these initiatives during the event.
