In November 2014, ClarkeKann was honoured to receive the Australia-Taiwan Business Excellence Award conferred by the Australia and New Zealand Chamber of Commerce in Taiwan.

The Award was in recognition of our efforts in Taiwan over the last 20 years in promoting and advising on most of the major investments from Taiwan into Australia. The most recent transaction was the largest investment ever from Taiwan of USD 1.15 billion by Formosa Plastics Group in the Iron Bridge Joint Venture with Fortescue Metals Group. Managing Partner, John Toigo, who leads our Taiwan practice, accepted the Award at a gala dinner in Taipei attended by various dignitaries, including representatives from both the Taiwan and Australian Governments. John said, “It was both humbling and gratifying for our efforts in Taiwan to be recognised in this manner. We have built strong and enduring trusted relationships in Taiwan, and we look forward to continuing to help Taiwanese companies with their business interests in Australia”.
