Heading to Taipei, Taiwan

We are delighted to be heading east for the 2021 Congress, to the vibrant city of Taipei, capital of Taiwan. Following our enforced absence in 2020, the Congress will be held in a country that has, to date, been the least affected by the pandemic globally. This remarkable achievement is in part due to the highly digitised population of almost 24-million people and a democratically elected government and competitive society who embrace technology and innovation. It is one of the world's most digitally wired nations. In Freedom House's assessment of free and independent media in 2019, Taiwan scored full marks. The proximity to China means many of the media houses have significant business interests in China or rely on advertising by Chinese companies. Our local partner for the event is United Daily News, Taiwan's largest privately-operated Chinese-language media group. It publishes the United Daily News, the Economic Daily News, and the World Journal, with editions published in North America and Southeast Asia. Its digital website, udn.com is the most popular news portal in the country.
