As guests spilled on to the lawns and sipped on wine and whisky, a food truck awaited, with delicacies like dim sums and egg rolls, perfect to beat the cold. Dr. Lin Trust, Director, Taiwan Tourism Bureau, and Taiwan’s Representative to India, Mr. Tien Chung Kwang, from the Taipei Economic and Cultural Centre were also present. 

Quotes from the evening:

“We can create an interest in Taiwan resulting in a 20% growth in tourism from India. We have 260 mountains that are higher than 3,000 metres, so it’s a mountain climbing paradise – fresh air and beautiful mountain resorts await the Indian visitor.”  

— Dr. Trust, Director, Taiwan Tourism Bureau
