With the two major features of unmanned systems and smart manufacturing, Taichung Industrial Automation Exhibition and Taichung Plastics and Rubber Industry Show 2017, held at Greater Taichung International Expo Center, Taichung, Taiwan July 13th– 17th, is expected to attract 50,000 visitors and business opportunities worthy of NT$ 1 billion (US$ 32.7 million).

At the grand opening ceremony, Alex Ko, chairman of the Taiwan Association of Machinery Industry (TAMI) and Shen Jong-Chin, Deputy Minister of Economic affairs both stressed that Taiwan's machinery industry is very likely to see production value break the NT$1 trillion(US$ 32.7 billion)mark for the whole year,

Shen noted, overall output of Taiwan's machinery industry last year totaled NT$990 billion (US$ 21.1 billion). This year, the export revenue for the past 6 months has increased by 14.7% to US$ 11.75 billion. When denominated in NT dollars, exports totaled NT$360, representing an annual growth of 7.5%,
