TAIPEI, Sept. 25, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The 2020 World System Integrator Conference (WSIC) online forum week, organized by System Integration Promotion Alliance (SIPA), covers smart cities, international cooperation in system integration, and the current developmental needs of countries. More than 100 overseas manufacturers and 350 people participated in the event.

Representatives of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) shared strategies to help modernize infrastructure through digital technology. The winners of Taiwan's 2020 System Integration Award also shared their success stories, and Taiwanese system integrators and representatives from Thailand, Indonesia, Russia, and India discussed their experiences in various countries.
Since the first WSIC last year, the System Integration Promotion Alliance Project Office (SIPA) of the "Industrial Development Bureau" (IDB), "Ministry of Economic Affairs" has arranged more than 70 meetings between manufacturers, opened up at least 20 business opportunities, and facilitated cooperation between Taiwanese manufacturers and local players in Thailand, Vietnam, and the Philippines.
This year, the Minister of the "National Development Council" (NDC), Kung Ming-Hsin and the Deputy Director-General of the IDB, "Ministry of Economic Affairs" (MOEA), Yang Chih-ching were specially invited to speak.
Minister Kung Ming-Hsin shared that the government began the Asia Silicon Valley Development Plan in 2016 to promote economic growth through entrepreneurship, industrial transformation through the Industrial Internet of Things, global resources for innovation and R&D, system integration capabilities of domestic enterprises, and overseas markets. Taiwan also plans to establish three international-level system integration companies.
Deputy Director-General, Yang Chih-ching also mentioned that system integration has become one of Taiwan's important industrial directions. Between 2018 to 2020, solutions tested included 224 smart services that have been developed in 22 counties and cities across Taiwan. These covered 5G factories, remote medical care on outlying islands, AI environmental monitoring, smart transportation, and smart learning.
The four Taiwanese manufacturers invited by WSIC this year have all been successful overseas export cases:
• The Syscom Group, which developed smart service robots used in Japan.
• AAEON, which has collaborated with General Electric (GE) to acquire an energy project for four power plants in the U.S.
• Glory Technology, which expanded the railway communication systems in Thailand and the Philippines.
• Chunghwa Telecom, which deployed telecommunications networks in Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, and Cambodia, and implemented information and communication applications in new smart parks.
Despite industrial impacts from COVID-19, pandemic-prevention technologies, such as AI thermal imaging and disease control systems have been recognized internationally. Hopefully, this will become an emerging field for system integration and export development in Taiwan.
In addition to the WSIC online forum this year, SIPA also set up a pavilion on smart solution and system integration at the 2020 Smart City Online Exhibition.
