Colorado and Taiwan

  • Building on Strong Trade Ties

    In 2015, Colorado’s exports to Taiwan reached $205.3 Million, a 7.2% increase from 2014. Taiwan is Colorado’s 7th largest export market in Asia, and 14th largest export market in the world. Colorado companies have substantial opportunities to expand their business and cooperation with Taiwan.

  • Growing a Key Market for ICT and Agriculture

    Taiwan has well established ICT industries. Enhancing trade and investment ties with Taiwan will help Colorado not only increase its exports to Taiwan, but also promote bilateral cooperation in innovation. The United States is the largest supplier of agricultural products to Taiwan. Starting April 2013, Taiwan has granted approval for the state of Colorado to ship fresh potatoes to the country. Taiwan is the fourth largest market for U.S. fresh potatoes, with exports reaching 17,678 metric tons in 2012, valued at $8,916,613. Closer trade partnerships with Taiwan through trade agreements will increase Colorado exports to Taiwan and increase jobs at home in Colorado.

  • Bringing New Trade and Investment Opportunities to the Great State of Colorado

    Taiwanese companies have invested more than $10 million in Colorado by July 2012, with the main investment focus on photonic component manufacturing and telephone and cellular phone industries.

  • Opening Up A Region of Opportunity

    Taiwan serves as an ideal partner for U.S. business in Asia. Taiwan has complete industrial supply chains, high concentration of industrial clusters, and a consolidated manufacturer base. The World Economic Forum ranked Taiwan's industrial cluster infrastructure first in the world in its "World Competitiveness Report 2014" for the ninth consecutive year. This is reflected in Taiwan's comprehensive protection of intellectual property rights, sound legal system, and modern infrastructure. Furthermore, the Economic Cooperation Framework Agreement (ECFA) signed between Taiwan and Mainland China in 2010 has opened up opportunities in Mainland China. Businesses can now collaborate with innovative Taiwanese companies and leverage ECFA to utilize Taiwan as a gateway to Mainland China and other fast-growing Asian markets.
