Imports/Exports in Taiwan

Overview by

Foreign trade has been Taiwan's growth driver, representing almost 130% of the GDP (2007-2009 average). Taiwan's economy remains very export-oriented, so much so that it depends on an open world trade regime and remains vulnerable to downturns of the world economy. The electronics sector is Taiwan's most important industrial export sector and also the one that receives most of the American investment. Taiwan, as an independent economy, became a member of the World Trade Organization (WTO) as the Separate Customs Territory of Taiwan, Penghu, Kinmen and Matsu ("Chinese Taipei") in January 2002. Taiwan main exports partners are China, Hong Kong, United States and Japan. For more information, refer to the COMTRADE website. The island shows a surplus trade balance and this trend should continue in the coming years.
