Jointly organized by entities such as the Taiwan DSA, the 2017 International Symposium on Direct Selling Laws and Regulations was attended by representatives of the industry, academia and government on June 21 at the NTUH International Convention Center. Chairperson Mei-ying Huang of the Fair Trade Commission (FTC) gave an opening speech out of her busy schedule, stating that the FTC is paying great attention to the overall development of the direct selling industry, and that relevant seminars will be needed in the future to introduce more ideas in order to create a sounder environment for the direct selling industry in Taiwan. Chairperson Shirley Chen of the Taiwan DSA remarked that according to the 2016 Amway Global Entrepreneurship Report, the entrepreneurship index in Taiwan is very high. In particular, 90% of people under 35 have a positive attitude towards entrepreneu
rship. This means that everyone can engage in direct selling, which is a simple entrepreneurship platform. Shirley Chen further commented that since Taiwan DSA's inception, there have been over 50 member companies, which account for 60% of all sales in Taiwan. She hoped this industry can be better through self-regulation and expected that direct selling practitioners can acquire direct selling knowledge to contribute to the prosperous development of this industry where over 2 million direct selling distributors can comfortably start their own businesses. This symposium consisted of two sessions. The theme of the first session was the Administrative Control over the Direct Selling Industry, exploring different legal constraints and administrative supervision facing the direct selling industry in Taiwan, mainland China and South East Asia.
