Over twenty companies from Taiwan will participate in the “Republic of China Taiwan Centennial Fair”, where they will showcase their products and share their successful experiences in international trade.

The fair will also involve Nicaraguan organizations, such as investment promotion agency ProNicaragua, and other entities linked to the export sector and trade with Asia.

An article in Laprensa.com.ni notes, "the Taiwanese delegation is keen to explore and develop opportunities for cooperation, strategic alliances and envisages business alternatives with their fellow Nicaraguans," said the ambassador Hsing.

Hsing believes that trade between China and Nicaragua will continue to grow, within the framework of the Free Trade Agreement in force since 2008. In 2010, Nicaraguan exports to Taiwan generated $29.2 billion, while imports totaled $16.9 million.
