Style Bangkok Fair started on October 17th in Bangkok. On the first day “TAIPEI Corners” already caught the attention of Thai company “The Emporium Department Store”, “SIAM SELECTED Department Store, and American company “Amazwishgifts”. These distributors placed many orders.
 
The representative of the Department of Cultural Affairs said: “Taipei City Government’s Department of Cultural Affairs and Taipei Culture Foundation have been working hard for many years to help the cultural and creative industries. Most notably, after 2017, the Taipei Culture Foundation signed an agreement with the Thai Creative Economy Agency. The agreement helped the two countries communicate better and collaborate in the field of design.”
