The Oscar of Asia-Pacific ICT, the Asia Pacific ICT Alliance Awards (APICTA Awards), was held in the capital of Sri Lanka, Colombo, at the end of November 2015. Twelve teams representing Taiwan with sixteen products received four Winners and two Merits Awards, making Taiwan the biggest award recipient in the event. Taipei Computer Association (TCA), with the supports from the Industrial Development Bureau (IDB) of the Ministry of Economic Affairs, hosted a press conference to congratulate the winning teams and to also officially kick start the 2016 APICTA Awards program, which is to be hosted in Taiwan.
IDB stated that the Ministry of Economic Affairs recognizes the importance of exporting Taiwan ICT solutions, and thus encourages and assists enterprises to compete in the APICTA Awards. The benefits for participating in the Awards are threefold.
First, this competition is conducted entirely in English, of which teams will be communicating with judges from different countries; this could elevate their international marketing skills and broaden their horizon. Second, participants are mainly companies focusing on practical solutions and may assist the commercialization of their award entries. Last but not least, Asia Pacific is a key focus of Taiwan’s export, APICTA is a great platform to stimulate interactions and to create business opportunities for the winners. Teams from Taiwan have been well recognized by receiving multiple Winners & Merits Awards, which indicates that Taiwan ICT companies have great potential to enter the Asia Pacific ICT Solution market.
The event is currently set for the first week of December 2016 in Taipei. The government will give full support to companies to participate in the event. It is hoped that this will be the best event ever, with teams from Taiwan performing their best, and most importantly expands the Asia Pacific ICT Solution market.
