2017-- A New Generation of Taiwan 's Value and Spirit
2016 was a year of dramatic changes. Many major events have occurred around the world, and whether in international incidents, politics, finance or climate, many seemingly impossible events happened against the odds and re-made history that astonished the public. The black swan effect continues to churn, causing Taiwan to confront major challenges both internally and externally.
Dickens wrote, "This is the best of times — and the worst of times. " For those of us in the present, "This is the worst of times--and the best of times. "
The Chinese Innovation and Invention Society had a full itinerary in 2016 in bringing Taiwan to global exhibitions. We felt the changes in the global market changes, and also saw the opportunities and market demand brought about by the changes.
Taiwan is made up of 95% small and medium enterprises that rely on export. With limited resources in the face of rising great powers, rapid economic development of emerging countries and frequent market reshuffling, what course should Taiwan adopt?
Through Taiwan's delegations to major international invention competitions in recent years,
we observed a new generation of Taiwan's value and spirit gradually forming and rising.
In the past, Taiwan had made its way into the world with nothing but a single suitcase. Now Taiwan has replaced that suitcase with brain power, and is using creativity to develop new market applications. At the same time, with its solid industrial experience, Taiwan has achieved soft and hard transformation by continuing to improve its products and provide new services.
The new generation of small and medium enterprises, micro-enterprises or individuals have persisted in excellent quality and service even in the face of competition for low price. With this fundamental foundation, we believe that Taiwan can remain fiercely competitive in a treacherous environment.
Taiwan is a very creative place with an inspiring pragmatic and industrious spirit that shines even through darkness. This is the spirit of the new generation of Taiwan, and looking back at past turmoil, market ebbs and fermentation, it is what makes Taiwan valuable.
The Chinese Innovation and Invention Society has always encouraged innovation and invention. From bringing Taiwan delegates to participate in major international inventions to facilitating the matching of patent and innovative inventions, the Society provides Taiwan's academic and industrial communities with step by step opportunities to participate in official international stage. The Society has also received encouraging feedback from the academic and industrial communities, which motivates us to better our services and develop more sophisticated platforms for identifying business patents and channeling Taiwan's academic and industrial communities into exhibitions and competition for invoices.
In 2017, the Chinese Innovation and Invention Society will continue to insist on Taiwan 's quality and services. The Society will expand its services and further internationalization to provide Taiwan's academic and industrial communities with a fertile ground for innovation and invention so that Taiwan's innovation and invention will continue to develop.

Competition is under the categories of “innovative technology”, “medical and healthcare”, “smart home and building” and “eco and better living”.
IIDC also support by International Federation of Inventors Associations (IFIA) , with the assistance of IFIA and its President( Mr.Alireza Rastegar) in drawing talented inventors from all over the world and providing two IFIA Best Invention awards is much appreciated. One of the award was presented to Invention "Certified Organic Neem Shampoo: Hair Therapy for Scalp and Hair Problem" from Thailand. This invention already USDA certified and being sold in the US and Germany, it attracted much attention at the exhibition and has received orders from Hong Kong and Taiwan. The other award was presented to Invention "A Portable I-Orchid for Noninvasive, Biochemical Consumable-Free, and Fast Examination of Orchid Diseases" from Taiwan, this invention is a viral test for orchids. In Taiwan, orchids industry is a high economic value crop and a significant export product. However viral infection in orchids is a major concern for floriculturists, yet traditional methods of viral testing involve damage to the flowers. The new viral test does not damage the flowers and does not require any consumable material. It is a precise and economical technique that is already in use for detecting virus in orchids.
The inventions in IIDC exhibition included patents from all over the world. Half of these inventions came from technology industries, university incubation centers and academic research. Youth inventor continued to be a highlight of this event. Twenty inventions were from elementary, middle and senior high schools, their age from 5 to 18, they displayed many their brilliant ideas, creativity and English fluency of these young inventors when describing their inventions to international buyers are particularly noteworthy. At the exhibition, many of them even received orders from Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia marking them as young but brilliant successes.
