Taiwan's culinary culture forum begins in Taipei

TAIPEI -- The second annual forum on Taiwan's culinary culture opened in Taipei Wednesday, attracting nearly 400 local and foreign food and restaurant industry heavyweights.

Hosted by the Ministry of Economic Affairs, the 2012 Gourmet Taiwan Summit and Forum offers a platform for participants to discuss future trends in the industry and how Taiwan can localize and internationalize the country's delicacies, the organizers said.

“Taiwan has long been noted for its gourmet food, which is one of the top attractions for foreign visitors,” said Vice Economics Minister Cho Shih-chao in his remarks to open the event.

Developing Taiwan's gourmet industry has also been a good way to boost the country's tourism sector, he said, explaining that Taiwan has developed a stronger presence in the world through its food.

Travel guide publisher Lonely Planet selected Taiwan as one of the top 10 countries for travelers to visit in 2012, in part because of its delicious food, according to an online article posted on Oct. 27.
