Artemis will represent the Queensland Chapter by attending the Oceania meeting in Taipei in September this year, connecting to 700 representatives from the Australasia region.

Taiwan is Australia’s sixth-largest merchandise export market, and the Queensland Charter is the most active in Australia. ATCC-Q organizes the annual Taiwanese Culture Festival in September, and runs regular educational seminars, youth training camps, and business meetings for Taiwanese entrepreneurs or those working with the Taiwanese businesses.

Artemis sees great potential in increasing QUT’s visibility to business leaders within the Taiwanese community. “I feel excited about the potential opportunity for research, service and teaching. There is the potential to grow student work place projects, corporate education programs, and many other collaborative activities.”

The charter of ATCC-Q is to:

  • promote the status of Taiwanese entrepreneurs in Queensland and to identify and develop potential business and investment opportunities in Queensland and Australia
  • strengthen mutual contacts, co-operations and friendships among Taiwanese entrepreneurs throughout Australia and to exchange business skills, management experiences and intellectual knowledge
  • provide business and financial information and resources to Queensland Taiwanese entrepreneurs in order to strength economic and trade co-operations between Australia, Taiwan and Oceania countries
  • work and lobby for the betterment of the status of Taiwanese entrepreneurs in Australia and to enhance the relationship between the officials of Australia and Taiwan.
  • promote social and cultural exchange in order to enhance the mutual understanding and economic developments.

Artemis will be the point of contact for ATCC-Q across QUT.
