Eiger Sponsors ECCT Business Forum, Oct. 6

Eiger Law was the legal sponsor for the 2008 ECCT Business Forum, held at the Taipei International Convention Center (TICC). The event featured an overview of the outlook for Europe’s economy from Klaus Regling, director general of the DG for Economy and Finance of the European Commission, as well as the release of the findings from the recent study by Copenhagen Economics about EU-Taiwan trade-enhancement measures and the results from lowering tariffs in key sectors. A panel discussion covered EU business opportunities in Asia and the role of Taiwan, and HSBC’s Richard Jaggard gave a talk on achieving greater working-capital efficiency.
