Anke Media also invited Vice President Lai Ching-Te to deliver a speech at the opening ceremony. Lai stated that Cares Expo Taipei has connected the local community in the past and will continue to bridge overseas countries, providing enhanced services and benefits for the elderly.


"Parson Lee, Founder and CEO of Anke Media, the organizer of Cares Expo Taipei, also mentioned that over the past four years, we have transformed Taiwan's long-term care industry and have attracted more people to participate in this sector.
