Taiwan is very active in R&D and product innovation. It provides high-quality products and services, which enables the development of international brands. Taiwan also has easy access to Mainland China's production resources, which makes the rapid achievement of mass production possible. Taiwan's wealth of production experience, ability to commercialize innovative products rapidly and its geographic position all are factors that help Taiwan create a value-added global production chain. This makes Taiwan a great production base for high-quality products. Furthermore, the scale and maturity of Taiwan's capital market can assist Taiwan businesses that are operating in Mainland China with listing in Taiwan's exchange market and can encourage international capital funds to participate in Taiwan businesses' overseas deployment. Taiwan is in a position to be the capital fund center for the international manufacturing industry and to be the base for strategic alliances between multi-national companies.
