In September 2016, Rakuten Kobo held an event for media and publishers to mark its service launch in Taiwan. While Taiwan's publishing business is a booming one, surprisingly the eBook business has still not taken off there. To take advantage of the less crowded market and also the strengths of the Rakuten Ecosystem in Taiwan, Rakuten Kobo worked hand-in-hand with Taiwanese publishers to launch its service in Taiwan.
Watch this video to catch highlights from the event, as well as well as interviews with Taiwanese publishers discussing their expectations towards Rakuten Kobo.
