Why Taiwan? 

Taiwan is world leader in many innovative technologies and its companies continue to stay on top of new developments. Taiwan and The Netherlands have a lot in common, with a long trading history going back over 400 years.  Both are internationally renowned as trading nations, and the business gateway to their regions. Taiwan has a western style legal system and has well developed support system for innovative companies also from abroad. The ‘Maker infrastructure; from Fablab to Foundry Factory’ makes Taiwan a great place to look for technology and production partners. But Taiwan is also growing as a soft-landing hub to penetrate markets like Japan and China.


The main objective of our program is for you to meet Taiwanese organizations, entrepreneurs and support organisations. The program includes a seminar to help you understand the Taiwanese opportunities and help you with your business expansion strategy. Taiwan Business Day end with a networking event to expand your international business network.
