2020 has been dominated by the global coronavirus pandemic. Every aspect of the economy has been affected to a greater or lesser extent. Yet in Taiwan, thanks to the government’s exemplary leadership, rapid, proactive and pragmatic actions, Taiwan has avoided the worst impacts of the coronavirus pandemic. Most multinational corporations operating in Taiwan have been much more affected by what is happening in the rest of the world than factors in Taiwan.
Despite the pandemic, the ECCT has maintained a high level and frequency of engagement with the Taiwan government, especially through meetings between ECCT committees and government officials, including Premier Su, several cabinet ministers, heads of bureaus, departments, agencies and numerous working level officials. Thanks to these exchanges and the government’s proactive approach, progress has been made on many of the issues raised in the 2020 Position Papers. At the launch of the ECCT’s 2021 Position Papers, we will review progress made and introduce the new papers that highlight priority issues and share European experiences, best practices and models with the government that are aimed at ensuring Taiwan’s continued economic prosperity.
As is tradition, the Minister of the National Development Council (NDC) has been invited to the launch to receive a copy of the 2021 Position Papers and make a few remarks on behalf of the Taiwan government.
Taiwan’s economy has performed remarkably well compared to other countries throughout the pandemic. Nevertheless, economic conditions remain challenging and foreign investors continue to face a number of obstacles that are hindering the development of their business operations in Taiwan. Addressing these issues will be crucial if Taiwan is to continue to attract and maintain foreign investment.
About the ECCT’s Position Papers
The ECCT’s Position Papers are published annually by the ECCT and include a collection of industry-specific issues and recommendations from a European business perspective on how to further improve the business environment in Taiwan. This year’s papers, compiled by the 25 of the ECCT’s 30 committees, primarily address the Taiwan government, but also serve to inform the European Commission, the governments of the individual European member states as well as the media and the general public.
