On Friday 23rd Bolgers Business Development Manager, Paul Collins, attended a business lunch with Ambassador Simon S. K. Tu and Clare Fine Gael TD Joe Carey in Quin, Co. Clare. Also in attendance were Brian King from Smithstown Light Engineering and Vincent Delaney from UTS HR Group.

During the meeting there were very rich discussions on Taiwan’s manufacturing capabilities, competitiveness and quality in the area of machine building and export as well as the culture comparisons between Taiwan and Ireland.
