Why Do Business in Taiwan?
With a population of 23 million, Taiwan is a thriving democracy, vibrant market economy, and a highly attractive export market, especially for U.S. firms. Taiwan is our ninth largest trading partner, putting it ahead of Brazil, India, and Italy. It is also our sixth largest agricultural market, and our fifth largest source of foreign students in U.S. higher education.
Taiwan is the fourth largest holder in the world of foreign exchange reserves, with over US $382 billion in 2010. The Taiwan economy has rebounded sharply from the global financial crisis and enjoyed nearly 10 percent GDP growth last year, low unemployment, and an appreciating currency that makes U.S. goods and services more attractive than ever to Taiwan buyers.
Taiwan’s vibrant market favors U.S. goods and respects intellectual property rights. Taiwan is also increasingly
becoming a gateway to sell U.S. products to mainland China.
