  • 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.
