At the meeting, the Organization for Data-driven Application (ODA from Taiwan) signed a memorandum of cooperation with Malaysia’s Open Data for Development (OD4D Asia Office from Malaysia) and the Open Data Center of the the University of Tokyo (UTODC from Japan), respectively, jointly promoting specific cooperation in the data economy in Asian countries, marking an important step for Taiwan's data service providers in expanding the international market.
Another focus of the international salon is business applications and market opportunities exchanges.

Experts and scholars at the meeting provided the latest and forward-looking strategies and past experiences in data economy promotion in various countries, and conducted interactive discussions to provide a more effective direction for the development of the data economy.
More than 30 enterprises from four countries participated in the event, which facilitated cooperation between Taiwan, the OD4D Asia Office and the Open Data Center of the University of Tokyo, marking an important step for Taiwan's data service providers in expanding the international market. In the future, the Ministry of Economic Affairs will continue to enlarge the international cooperation network, so that the business opportunities of the data economy can bring about more enterprise innovation and enhance industrial competitiveness.
