The Chamber Women Executives Club (WEC) is organizing an exclusive tour to visit the cities of Taichung and Taipei. We will explore some original and creative businesses in the cities, the transformation of a family business, and the rise of the health and beauty industries. Through visiting the companies and engaging with the founders and owners, some of whom are successful female entrepreneurs, we will gain useful insights into their unique business models.
Apart from company visits, meeting government officials and exchange with local entrepreneurs, we will also experience the culture, nature, and delicious food that has made Taiwan such an attractive travel destination in Asia. *The trip will be conducted in Cantonese/Mandarin.
