Taiwan is geographically located at the Asia-Pacific transportation hub connecting Northeast and Southeast Asia. Taiwan serves not only as an important bridge connecting Europe, America and Japan to emerging Asia-Pacific markets but also as a preferred location for multinationals to establish Asia-Pacific headquarters
Taiwan’s investment environment scores highly in numerous international rankings. In the “Global Competitiveness Report 2018” issued by the World Economic Forum, Taiwan ranks 13th out of 140 economies and fourth in the Asia-Pacific. The Economist Intelligence Unit forecasts Taiwan’s business environment to be 14th best in the world during the 2014 – 2018 period. With advantages, such as the ability to innovate, manufacturing strength, and the integration of Taiwanese businesses into Asian industrial chains, lead international enterprises to choose Taiwan as their base for entering Mainland China and the emerging markets of Asia. They then use Taiwan as a platform to expand worldwide.
The highly developed nature of its industrial clusters has helped Taiwan to become the world’s second-largest information hardware producer, its semiconductor foundry industry and semiconductor packaging and testing industry to become tops in the world, its IC design industry to become second in the world and its PC products industry to become third. Taiwan has more than 10 technology research institutions, including Industrial Technology Research Institute and the Institute for Information Industry, which cultivate a large number of science and technology research and development talent, making them ideal partners for foreign companies seeking to enter the Asia-Pacific and global markets.
