THE Small and Medium Enterprise Administration (SMEA) of the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) launched the OTOP (One Town One Product), the local cultural industry counseling program in 1989. The program starts out with each township or city, and develops local cultural products with history, culture, exceptionality, or uniqueness. The promotional content ranges from processed foods, living crafts, creative living products, creative gourmet, rural leisure, to festival events.
The specialty and recreational tourism industry of each township are upgraded from industry technology and service to industry co-marketing alliances through the counseling of local cultural industry programs, so that the characteristics of each township or city will disseminate throughout the entire country and have a strong presence on the international stage including the upcoming TAIWAN EXPO 2017 to be held from September 29 to October 1, 2017 at the SMX Convention Center, MOA Complex, Pasay City.
Since 2008, Taiwan Local Cultural Industries Internationalization Counseling Project has selected industries with potential in the international market (e.g., tea, ceramics, glass, pastry and bamboo) to provide guidance and counseling, and has established the OTOP International Marketing Alliance which is aimed at sharing Taiwan’s unique characteristics with foreign counterparts by means of network collaboration, enhancing product features, establishing distribution channels and themed industries marketing.
