Dear Ladies and Gentlemen, dear Colleagues, dear Friends,


I would like to thank the Taiwan Automotive Forum for the opportunity to participate in this year’s event. As we all know, the current pandemic requires governments worldwide to restrict travel and enact regional lockdowns. Our common ways to connect and to communicate have been disrupted. But especially in these hard times it is important to keep international channels open and to continue to exchange information and ideas. Fortunately, modern technology and new media enable us to do exactly that. I hope you enjoy my presentation and I am looking forward to view yours.


Please take care and stay save and healthy.
