The Taiwan Excellence campaign started as part of the Ministry of Economic Affair’s (MOEA) 5 year plan in the 1980’s to raise Taiwan’s international competitiveness by supporting its local brands. Under the Image Enhancement Plan, the Taiwan Excellence Award campaign was established in 1992. The “Taiwan Excellence” was awarded to products based on R&D, design, quality, and marketing efforts. If selected, the brands and products were allowed to use the Taiwan Excellence Seal locally and internationally.
Promoting the Best of Taiwan with the Seal of
Globalization expands people’s shopping choices. Today, people, including Filipinos, have access to more goods and services from different countries. However, there are no guarantees that imported products are of high quality. To address this, Taiwan, through its Bureau of Foreign Trade of Taiwan (BOFT) and Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA), has organized and implemented a campaign to help Filipino consumers identify the best from the rest.
Taiwan Excellence is a campaign that recognizes high-quality Taiwanese brands, guaranteeing their superior quality and value. To qualify for these awards, the products go through a rigorous screening process to ensure that they are of the highest standard and can proudly represent the unique and innovative culture of Taiwan.
The Awarding Process
All Taiwan based brands are eligible to be part of the campaign. Product categories include consumer and business IT, fashion, arts and culture, sports, education, transportation, and others.
Each product is scored based on its R&D, design, quality, and marketing by an international panel of judges. Each product must score evenly in all four categories. After careful evaluation, those selected are allowed to carry the Taiwan Excellence Seal.
From among the selected products, the judges choose those
who deserve the Silver and Gold Award recognition. They
will select thirty from the original winners, with only ten to be given the Gold Award, the highest recognition under the
campaign, while the remaining finalists will be given the Silver Award.
