The meeting, the 10th of its kind, will take place in Singapore and will be hosted by the Singapore Business Federation (SBF), according to the website.
Douglas Tong Hsu, Far Eastern Group chairman and chairman of the CIECA's Singapore Committee, will head the Taiwanese delegation, which will include 17 Taiwan-based business leaders and 40 Taiwanese business representatives based in Singapore, it said.

The two sides will also exchange views on third market opportunities, logistics and renewable energy.
