Taiwan Investment

Over the past couple of years EIAS conducted numerous studies to map Taiwanese investment in the EU, and looked at ways to strengthen EU-Taiwan trade and investment relations. In 2014, EIAS embarked on a study comprising of a quantitative and qualitative part focuses on Taiwanese Outward Foreign Direct Investment (OFDI) in the European Union (EU). Through a macro-view the project shed a light on the Taiwanese economic presence in the EU through its OFDI. This was done with the intention to encourage the strengthening of already significant investment relations between the European Union and Taiwan.

In 2015, complementary to the research conducted in 2015 the European Institute for Asian Studies (EIAS) has conducted research on 10 leading Taiwanese enterprises doing business in the EU in order to identify the key factors that drive their activities in Europe. The report aims at understanding the rationale behind the individual decisions to invest in the European Union and identifying a set of common hurdles and issues that Taiwanese firms face when entering the European market.
