HCM CITY — Around 7,000 people from all walks of life participated in the third HCM City Run organised late last week courtesy of the main sponsor, Taiwan Excellence.

After two successful years, the city's biggest running event has seen its goodwill and reputation resonate in the community, contributing to a dynamic portrait of Vietnamese.

Prizes were awarded to six outstanding female and male participants each, who respectively ran races of 21km and 10km.

In this, the third year of the event, Taiwan Excellence is proud to be main sponsor.

Taiwan Excellence is a campaign to introduce the best and finest products of Taiwan instituted by the Taiwanese Ministry of Economic Affairs' Bureau of Foreign Trade.

It has been implemented annually by the Taiwan External Trade Development Council since 1990. In Việt Nam, the campaign is in its seventh year.

Tang Ming Hui, director of the Taiwan Trade Centre's representative office in HCM City, said: "As of September 2015 Taiwan has invested US$29.4 billion in 2,476 projects in Việt Nam, ranking it fourth out of 105 countries and territories with investments in Việt Nam.

"This is the most convincing figure to prove that Taiwanese organisations are committed to the development of Việt Nam, especially the Taiwan Excellence campaign.

"There is great expectation from Taiwan Excellence to continue the success of this campaign for many more years and deliver more excellent made-in-Taiwan products.

"There is tremendous demand for Taiwanese products among Vietnamese consumers."
