Business

Taiwan’s development successes are reflected in great economic dynamism, in the rise to an internationally significant trading nation and in a comparatively high gross national income for Asiaof (2016) around US $ 22,450 per resident. While growth rates of around 9% per year were recorded in the 1980s, the pace of development slowed down as the economy matured and was 6.4% in the following decade; 2001–2010 at 3.8% (2009: minus 1.9%; 2016: 1.4%). At an annual rate of 0 to 3% (2016: 1.4%), inflation remained at a consistently low level. The unemployment rate also remained consistently low (2016: 3.9%). Economic structures have been subject to strong pressure to adapt, especially since the late 1980s. Rising labor costs have led to the gradual outsourcing of labor-intensive export production to other Asian countries and mainland China, thereby increasing Taiwan’s dependence on the mainland. The main drivers of current development are high-tech industries such as the electronics industry, mechanical engineering and biotechnology, as well as the service sector. In order to strengthen Taiwan’s international position in the Asia-Pacific region and to promote the influx of foreign capital and know-how, the government has been pursuing an ambitious program of economic liberalization since 1993 (including joining the World Trade Organization in 2002 and concluding a framework agreement on economic Cooperation with China 2010) and the development of Taiwan into a regional economic and service center. Check weddinginfashion to see Economy of Eastern Asia.

Foreign trade: The poor supply of raw materials and the relatively small domestic market led to the increasing importance of foreign trade. Taiwan is one of the leading trading nations and has been able to multiply its export volume in the last two decades (1990: US $ 67 billion; 2016: US $ 280.5 billion). Over 90% of exports are industrial products, while imports (1990: US $ 52 billion; 2016: US $ 230.9 billion) are dominated by energy and raw materials as well as preliminary and intermediate products for industrial production. The export success is due to the further diversification of the export goods industries. Since 1995 Taiwan has developed into one of the world’s largest suppliers of information and communication technology (electronic components, semiconductors, computers, laptops, netbooks, smartphones, monitors, cameras and flat screens). The most important trading partners in export are (2016) China (26.3%) and Hong Kong (13.7%), the USA and Japan. China (19.1%), Japan (17.6%) and the USA (12.5%) dominate imports. Constantly high trade surpluses and capital inflows from abroad led to growing foreign exchange reserves (2016: US $ 434.2 billion).

Agriculture

Taiwan’s change from an agricultural to an industrialized to a service society is illustrated by the drastically reduced share of agriculture in the number of employees (1952: 56%; 2016: 4.9%) and in GDP (1952: 33%, 2016: 1, 8%) clearly. The land reform carried out in the 1950s brought an increase in harvest results and productivity gains. In the 1990s, however, Taiwan’s agricultural sector faced many problems such as extremely small farm sizes, emigration of labor and increasing foreign competition as the government gradually opened the agricultural sector to foreign products when it joined the WTO. Due to the mountain character, only a quarter of the country’s area can be used for agriculture, around half of which are irrigated rice fields. Rice is the most important crop (two harvests a year). Other traditionally important vegetable products such as sweet potatoes, sugar cane, asparagus, mushrooms, bananas and pineapples, like rice, are no longer competitive without government subsidies and protective tariffs. With the exception of fish production, Taiwan has become an importing country.

Forestry: The forest area is around 2.1 million hectares. The government is pursuing a policy of forest conservation with decreasing logging of firewood. In 2014, 42 200 m 3 of wood were felled.

Fisheries: Fisheries evolved from inshore fishing to deep-sea fishing. The catch was (2014) 1.41 million t; 341,400 t of this comes from aquaculture. Around half of the catch is exported.

Service sector

The steadily increasing share of the tertiary sector in the overall economy (2016: 65.6% of GDP) reflects Taiwan’s structural change from an industrial to a service society. Finance and insurance, trade, as well as catering and government services are decisive for this economic sector.

Tourism: In 2014, 9.9 million foreign guests came to the island. The largest group were visitors from mainland China (5.2 million); tourists from Japan (1.6 million), South Korea (525,000) and the USA (455,200) followed. Tourist attractions include the National Palace Museum in Taipei and other temples, the sandstone formation of Yeliu, the culture of the indigenous people, the Sun-Moon Lake and the national parks that were established from the mid-1980s.
