The Taiwan Excellence Awards were established by the Ministry of Economic Affairs in 1993. Every
year, eligible candidates are subjected to a rigorous and stringent selection system that covers
four major aspects of “R&D”, “Design”, “Quality” and “Marketing” to identify outstanding products
that offer “Innovative Value” while satisfying the key criterion of being “made in Taiwan”. Products
that have been selected for the Taiwan Excellence Awards would serve as examples of the domestic
industries and be promoted by the government in the international market in an effort to shape the
creative image for Taiwanese businesses.
