Doing Business Report published by the World Bank each year is noted for providing professional, objective surveys and rankings; hence has become an important touchstone of business environment promotion for many countries. APEC, based on the Report, has proposed action plan in 2009 as targets for member economies to launch their respective business environment reforms.
Taiwan is very well aware of the importance of the reform and has been perfecting business environment since by utilizing the experience gained from multinational exchanges and cooperation, in addition to active participation in economic initiatives involving international organizations, such as APEC. National Development Council (NDC) has launched two Four-Year Reform Plans since 2008 and carried out them in coordination with relevant ministries. Furthermore, NDC has taken advantage of regulatory harmonization and deregulation mechanisms to create an improved business-operating environment to offer foreign companies opportunities to invest in Taiwan.
Looking to the future, NDC is expanding further the range and extent of the reform to benefit both foreign and domestic businesses. And we continue to strengthen and deepen current regulatory reforms to reduce the obstacles in the way of foreign companies trying to invest in Taiwan.
Since 2011, NDC has compiled and published annual reform results of various government agencies, and would welcome any helpful advice or suggestions to improve business environment in Taiwan with open arms.
