Taiwan GDP: Powering A Global Leader

Taiwan is one of the world’s top 20 economies in terms of GDP and the global leader in semiconductor manufacturing, contributing over 60% of the world’s raw semiconductors and more than 90% of the most advanced ones.

A crucial locus for regional and global trade and investment, Taiwan boasts a highly skilled workforce of 24 million people, a well-developed institutional framework, a wide range of financial services, and attractive incentives for foreign investors. Challenges include over-reliance on the technology sector and mainland Chinese demand, an aging population and tenuous diplomatic status.
