TOKYO -- Taiwan's premier technology trade expo, Computex Taipei, has stepped up a public relations campaign to woo Japanese companies looking to relocate advanced production away from China, seeking an opportunity in the trade war between the U.S. and the mainland.

The Taipei Computer Association, one of the Computex sponsors, has set up a product promotion center staffed with Japan experts. The center launched a Japanese-language website in March containing information about motherboards and other Taiwanese-made modules.
