TAITRA’s Myanmar auto parts show features 120 exhibitors

News this week: Last week, the second edition of Auto Expo Myanmar successfully concluded at the Tatmadaw Exhibition Hall in Yangon. Jointly organised by the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) and Taipei-based Chan Chao International, the show featured 120 exhibitors from eight countries and regions during 18th to 21st July.

Exhibitors from Taiwan, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, U.K., U.S., Vietnam and mainland China showcased automobile parts and components to a reported audience of 8,130 buyers – up 19% from last year. TAITRA expects the show to generate up to US$25 million in sales. According to TAITRA’s statistics, there are between 500,000 and one million automobiles in Myanmar, where the majority are second-hand imports.

Walter Yeh, executive vice president of TAITRA, was quoted saying, “Our debut in Myanmar last year featured the dual themes of auto parts and electromechanical equipment. This year, we are focusing on a single theme and it has paid off, attracting even more visitors to the expo.”
