Hiring in Taiwan

One of the four ‘Asian Tigers’, Taiwan is famous for its meteoric economic rise, resulting in becoming a global manufacturing hub, particularly in the electronics and consumer goods industries. It’s also famous for its cuisine, coastline and of course a fraught relationship with neighbour China.

Taiwan is an extensively-developed, highly industrialised nation with the world’s 21st largest economy. Taiwan is services and export-focused, with electronics, semiconductors and sporting goods contributing largely to export revenues. Taiwan is a rich nation with high human development, and its place on the international finance stage is typified by the skyscrapers that fill the capital Taipei, notably the former world’s tallest building, Taipei 101.

International investment is widespread and major communications organisations have manufacturing and service hubs in Taiwan. International payroll in Taiwan is very common thanks to established infrastructure, a skilled workforce, competitive salaries and established working regulations and laws.
