Indigenous rights advocates from around the world on Saturday had advice for Taiwan as it works to achieve transitional justice for Aborigines.
Throughout Taipei the sweet fragrance of dark coffee abounds, wafting out of everywhere from chain coffee shops to hipster cafés. And with free trade agreements between Taiwan, Belize, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama, coffee culture looks set to be more prominent than ever at this year's Taiwan International Tea, Coffee & Wine Expo.
As coffee fever sweeps Taiwan, it has brought with it increasing demand for high quality beans. The Republic of Nicaragua's Ambassador to Taiwan William M. Tapia believes this rising demand has in turn encouraged producers from his country to bring the best quality coffee beans to Taiwan.
With the explosion of coffee culture in Taiwan, the tastes of local coffee drinkers have become increasingly refined, shifting from standard espresso-based drinks toward premium-quality specialty blends and single origin roasts.
The number of visitors at the Taipei International Travel Fair (Taipei ITF) grew 6.7 percent to reach 105,664 on Saturday, while exhibitors indicated that "buyer interest is still there," according to the Taiwan Visitor Association (TVA, 台灣觀光協會), the organizer of the popular trade fair.
