European trade office reports successful 2012

A European trade office in Taipei said it had a "very successful" year despite Taiwan's economic slowdown.

The European Chamber of Commerce Taipei (ECCT) released its annual report to members at its general meeting yesterday.

Despite Taiwan's challenging economic conditions, the chamber has had a very successful year, according to the report.

The chamber is finishing the year with strong membership and a stable financial base. Quality and participation at events has remained very high, while the chamber has regularly engaged with the Executive Yuan throughout the year, according to the report.

"The chamber continues to be the leading organization representing European businesses interests in Taiwan and is seen by the EU Commission, government and business as one of the two most influential foreign business organizations in Taiwan," the report stated, adding that conditions for the ECCT bode well for 2013.

Also yesterday, the ECCT elected its board of directors and supervisors for 2013, and the new board elected a new chairman, Giuseppe Izzo. Izzo is general manager of STMicroelectronics, a French-Italian semiconductor chip and electronics maker.

The ECCT, which has some 700 members, represents European business interests in Taiwan. The chamber publishes recommendations to the Taiwan government, meets with government officials, conducts studies and hosts talks related to its trade interests.
