Taiwan: Home to global manufacturers and lauded as one of the “super innovators” for ease of doing international business

As one of the four Asian Tigers, Taiwan is a global supply chain base for high-quality products and manufacturers within electronics, automotive parts, textiles and machinery.  Trade Link’s partnered services meet our customer’s growing demand for high quality logistics services.

Taiwan is an important market in regional and global supply chains and hailed as one of the world’s trading “super innovators” when it comes to ease of doing international business and offering one of the most favourable environments for investment in Asia.

Taiwan is adapting to supply chain adjustments under the U.S.-China trade conflict and attracting Taiwanese manufacturers to relocate home at the same time.  Taiwanese companies have moved facilities producing high-end networking gear, laptops, servers and bicycles back to Taiwan this year, while manufacturing of lower-margin products has gone to Southeast Asia.

As an export-dependent economy of 23 million people, Taiwan is on track for GDP to rise 2.5% this year.  With Taiwan as one of North America’s major trade partners, shipments to the U.S. are reported to have risen by almost $4.2 billion in the first half of 2019, gaining from China’s loss of exports to America.

In recent years, foreign direct investment (FDI) in Taiwan has performed well.  The government effort now aims to use Taiwan’s strengths in high-technology, manufacturing and R&D, with a focus on targeted sectors, including smart machinery, green energy, biotechnology and biopharmaceuticals, and the Internet of Things (IoT).

Taiwan as a global supply chain base currently has seven free trade zones, based in Keelung, Kaohsiung, Taichung, Taipei, Taoyuan, Anping and Suao.  The major benefit of FTZ’s is that foreign investors are treated as nationals, enjoying a loosening of restrictions on the flow of goods and simplification of customs procedures.  Customs clearance is exempted from inspection when shipped to or from the Zone.
