TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Taiwan is expected to export its surgical mask manufacturing machines as early as August amid growing global demand.
The island country has been put on the map for its quick response to the coronavirus pandemic. It has been recognized widely for its ability to pool resources from the private sector to produce large quantities of much sought-after surgical masks in a time of worldwide shortage.
Dubbed the “national mask team,” the public-private collaboration saw 92 production lines of surgical masks put in place in just 40 days, wrote CNA. The feat has placed Taiwan’s prowess in manufacturing and medical technologies in the spotlight and drawn the attention of many countries.
Companies from the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Italy, Germany, and Malaysia have expressed interest in procuring mask machinery from Taiwan. Given the still high domestic demand in Taiwan, the orders will not be fulfilled until the second half of the year.
