Taipei, Sept. 15 (CNA) The facilities and services of the Taipei World Trade Center (TWTC) have been awarded internationally renowned certificates for their excellence, according to the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) Saturday.
The TWTC received "Best Practice" certificates for all eight categories of the U.S.-based World Trade Centers Association (WTCA), said TAITRA, Taiwan's main trade promotion body that runs the TWTC.
This year, the Taipei center is the only association member to win certificates in all the categories, including trade information services, business services, club facilities, tenant services, conference services and trade technology innovations, TAITRA added.
