Globally recognized for its investment strengths, Taiwan offers superior geographical and cultural advantages, a vibrant yet stable economy, technological prowess, tightly integrated industrial infrastructure, professional talent and a skilled labor force. Taiwan’s economic strength is rooted in its industrial base, which started with a manufacturing boom in basic-level exported goods and progressed to technology intensive industries, such as electrical goods and chemicals. The Taiwan government is dedicated to attracting investment by establishing a free and open investment system, and by providing a good environment for corporate operations.
According to the 2005∼2006 global competitiveness report issued by the World Economic Forum (WEF), in 2005 Taiwan ranks fifth in the world (behind the countries of Finland, the US, Sweden and Denmark), and first in Asia, in growth competitiveness. In its 2nd report in 2006, Business Environment Risk Intelligence (BERI) of Switzerland ranks our investment environment sixth in the world and third in Asia. The assessments compiled by these institutions, all of which enjoy a high degree of public trust, make it clear that Taiwan has a low-risk investment environment that is suitable for investment, and that its investment environment is a highly advantageous one1.
