Office of Sujeet Kumar to hold Dialogue on Taiwan-Odisha Ties

The Webinar will be held on 21st May, 2021

TNI Bureau: As part of their Global Development Dialogue (GDD), the office of Rajya Sabha MP Sujeet Kumar will hold a webinar on “Taiwan and Odisha: Economic and Investment Opportunities” between 10 AM-11:30 AM on 21st May, 2021.

This webinar intends to discuss the challenges and opportunities for Taiwan and Odisha to develop a thriving economic partnership.

The coastal state of Odisha, in Eastern India, has grown above national average in last decade and continues to attract large foreign investments. As Taipei and Delhi come closer to focus on increased bilateral investments, technical cooperation and people to people exchange, Bhubaneswar (capital of Odisha) has the capacity and willingness to contribute to this process.

There is massive opportunity to significantly enhance the India-Taiwan trade ties, and this can be achieved by focusing on building and augmenting trade ties between Taiwan and Indian states.

Taiwan is a strong and growing economy in Asia Pacific and India offers a brilliant investment climate. Despite Taiwan’s Southbound Policy, bilateral trade with India in 2020, however, stands at $4.79 billion only which is way below its true potential.
