As part of the ECCT’s ongoing programme as a nationwide association to actively engage in cooperation with municipal
governments all across Taiwan, members are invited to participate in a trip to Kinmen Island. The outing will begin with a lunch meeting with Kinmen Mayor Chen Fu-hai and a tour of the island, which will include a visit to the famous Kinmen Kaoliang Liquor
Inc (金門酒廠)and Jhaishan Tunnel (翟山坑道), which was used by the Republic of China Armed Forces during wartime and for military exercises.
This event offers an exceptional experience and exclusive opportunity for ECCT members to explore business opportunities
in Kinmen. During the lunch, Mayor Chen will outline his vision for the future development of Kinmen. Among other subjects he will talk about business opportunities in the travel and tourism, medical tourism, green energy, electric vehicles, beverage, retail
and luxury goods sectors.
Kinmen has an interesting history as a front-line battle ground between opposing forces in the Chinese civil war,
which has since developed into a popular tourist location and a trading point between Taiwan and mainland China given its close proximity to the mainland. Direct travel between mainland China and Kinmen re-opened in January 2001 under the mini Three Links(小三通),
and there has been extensive development of tourism and trade on the island since then. Many Taiwanese businesspeople use the link through Kinmen to enter the Chinese mainland, especially via Xiamen(廈門). Since 1 January 2015, tourists from Mainland China could
directly apply for Exit and Entry Permit upon arrival in Kinmen, further boosting the flow of people and goods. Kinmen is famous for the production of Kaoliang liquor, seafood and for producing knives made from the remaining of shells fired by the People's
Liberation Army between 1958 and 1978.
