“It is an absolute privilege to host this tournament in Malaysia, and we are honoured to receive an overwhelming response with this initiative,” said Patty Yen, Deputy Executive Director of Strategic Marketing Department of Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA). “TEIB has enabled us to draw closer to the fast-growing e-Sports community and Malaysian universities, also allowing us to feature the best of Taiwan products and technology.
