Sustainable Pig Farming Delegation Taiwan

DAFC and the Trade Council of Denmark in Taipei invite you to participate in an export delegation to Taiwan focusing on sustainable pig farming.

Following recent ambitions on Taiwan to transform the pig production industry to be more sustainable, the market for sustainable solutions within pig farming offers great opportunities for Danish companies. This delegation will give Danish companies the opportunity to meet with future customers, obtain market knowledge and expand networks.

The key drivers for investment on Taiwan in advanced and green solutions within pig farming are: 

1) The goal on Taiwan is to reach net zero emission for agriculture production by 2040. A significant amount of budget is allocated to support the net zero initiative.

2) Strict environmental regulations and the public demand for clean neighbourhoods nearby the farms. High demand for solutions for reducing farm waste, odour, and wastewater treatment. Farmers need to pay a fee to get rid of pig manure and bedding material.

3) The sector faces labour shortages, and it is difficult to attract people to work in the farms. The industry is keen to introduce automotive and smart farming solutions. Subsidies are being provided to farmers to carry out relevant investments. Danish solutions presented by the companies during this delegation can help tackle these challenges, contribute to the green transition on Taiwan and tap into the commercial opportunities connected to solving these issues.

The total price for participation in the export delegation to Taiwan is 20,150 DKK excl. flight, hotel, and VAT per company for one representative after deduction of 50% subsidy from The Trade Council. The price for an extra representative is 3,000 DKK per person.

NOTE: The Danish company is free to have its local representatives represent your company in full during the event. On the registration form you can, if relevant, therefore add the contact information of the local participating person/company. However, only Danish companies in Denmark with a Danish CVR number can register for participation, and the invoice will always be issued in DKK to the Danish company address.

We reserve the right to offer you participation at a different price should any of the above criteria change. Should this result in a higher price than quoted, you have the right to cancel your participation. Other expenses not mentioned above are at own expense including visa, flights, dine & drink, and hotel.

NOTE: The price is based on 7 participating companies, who are all eligible for subsidy, and 50 percent subsidy (already granted) from the Trade Council of Denmark. If your company is not eligible for subsidy due to de-minimis issues (having received more than 1.5 million DKK in de-minimis subsidy within the past 3 years, including the present) you are binding yourself to pay the full price, meaning without the subsidy. The same conditions apply if you do not wish to receive subsidy.
