During the conference, keynote speeches and a poster competition were used to promote traditional medicine research and development in many different countries. They also resulted in many discussions and the sharing of experience in traditional medicine between Taiwan and these Southeast Asian countries. This not only has increased the research dynamic for traditional medicine in Taiwan and enhanced Taiwan’s reputation, but has also promoted international cooperation in traditional medicine.
