Taiwan has a concentrated, comprehensive transportation network, highly developed sea and air transport systems that connect via 7 international harbours and 17 airports, and relatively inexpensive water, electricity and telecommunications utilities that approach 100% penetration.
Businesses find that regulations relating to taxes and fees are transparent and clear.
Commercial regulations are quickly adjusted in line with changing international norms and foreign investors enjoy substantial protection under the Statute for Investment by Foreign Nationals.
Fundraising and Financing Environment
Stable exchange rates, and relatively low interest rates and capital costs make Taiwan a friendly environment for fundraising and financing. In terms of direct financing, the cost of listing on an exchange or over the counter is lower in Taiwan than in Hong Kong or China. The price-earnings ratio and price to-book ratio of shares are reasonable and liquidity is good.
