The Taiwan Trade Fair will display Taiwanese-made products in three main categories:
1. Agro-processing related products, which will utilize ideas for agricultural diversification for St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
2. Computer and Electronic products, which will demonstrate the strength of Taiwan’s hi-tech powerhouse with the hope that the information age will also drive St. Vincent and the Grenadines to a potentially advanced state and
3. Tourism-related products, which will look to boost the prosperous tourism industry of the country.
The catalogues of Taiwanese-made products will also be showcased for local businessmen and entrepreneurs to seek opportunities of quality products for various purposes.
In addition to the Trade Fair as a new initiative, a Taiwan Trade Loan Fund, will also be put in place in the near future, through cooperation between the National Commercial Bank (SVG) and a bank in Taiwan for Vincentian entrepreneurs to take advantage of when in need of financial support.
