Taipei trade center tops best practices list

The TWTC is the only member of the World Trade Centers Association to be recognized this year for excellence in all eight categories of services and facilities.

The Taipei World Trade Center has been awarded the maximum number of 2012 Best Practices designations by the World Trade Centers Association for its excellence in services and facilities.

Eric R. Dahl, new chief executive officer of the WTCA, announced Sept. 14 in Taipei City that the TWTC is the only one of the organization’s 325 members worldwide to receive the honor this year in all eight categories of services and facilities, including business, rental and trade services, exhibition and conference facilities, and trade missions.

Wang Chih-kang, chairman of the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA), which runs the TWTC, is scheduled to accept the honors at the 43rd WTCA General Assembly Sept. 22-26 in Moscow, Russia.

The nonprofit, nongovernmental WTCA was founded in New York City in 1970 and currently has member trade centers in 96 countries. It established best practices standards in 1994.

The TWTC received Best Practices certification in six categories in 2002.
