Personal Protection in the Post-pandemic Era, Taiwan can help!
Organization:   Date: 2020-08-05
Following the devastation that COVID-19 has created across the globe in 2020, "mask wearing" has become one of the most fundamental yet crucial forms of protection that countries can practice and urge to protect their citizens from the threat of death and disease.

With the joint efforts of Taiwan's textile industry as well as organizations in both the public and private sectors, Taiwan has become a shining beacon of light internationally for its success in curbing the spread. Taiwan is committed to sharing its experience and resources as it fulfills its responsibility as a member of the international community, and has worked tirelessly to enhance epidemic prevention measures in conjunction with other nations under threat. To date, Taiwan has donated over 6 million face masks to countries in the Southbound market, including Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, and India. The Indian community in Taiwan as well as the Indian Chamber of Commerce have even paraded through the streets in cars and on motorcycles as a token of appreciation for Taiwan's contributions to the world and to India as COVID-19 continues to ravage the world.

"Textiles for sanitary use" has become a focus for development for Taiwan's textile industry in the post-pandemic era. Due to COVID-19, face coverings have now even become a fashion accessory that global luxury brands have begun to design and produce. Taiwan's many medical-grade composite fiber suppliers are tasked with providing upper stream manufacturers key materials for producing face masks, including the outer, middle and inner layers of the standard surgical mask. These manufacturers are also contemplating the possibility of incorporating trendy designs into their products.

The Bureau of Foreign Trade (BOFT) of the Ministry of Economic Affairs has commissioned Taiwan Textile Federation to carry out the Textile Export Promotion Project, which entails calling to arms Taiwan's outstanding suppliers of epidemic prevention textiles, and matching global buyers seeking medical-grade textiles from the Americas, Europe and South Asia with Taiwanese businesses. Going forward, more international buyers looking to purchase all types of textiles will continue to benefit from this project in the bid to create a safer future for all in the post-pandemic era.
