Foreword from Steve Firstbrook, Head of International Trade & Investment Taiwan, Department for International Trade
My team at the British Office work in partnership with the British Chamber of Commerce in Taipei (BCCT) to help UK companies export their goods and services to Taiwan.
Our teams identify Taiwanese buyers, including ministries, local government, state owned enterprises and private firms, and introduce them to UK businesses.
We focus much of our effort on sectors where we think there is the strongest demand for UK goods and services. In Taiwan, these sectors include renewable energy (particularly offshore wind), infrastructure (particularly railways) and nuclear decommissioning. There are also very good opportunities in financial services, technology sectors, food & drink and consumer goods.
We can support your company in a number of ways, including conducting market research, organising trade missions, promoting your company at industry events, making introductions and advising you about Taiwanese regulations and best practice for exporting here.
UK firms that succeed in Taiwan tend to have an on the ground presence and demonstrate persistence and perseverance. They also recognise that Taiwan is a market where relationships matter a great deal, and many see my team and the BCCT, along with our wide network of contacts, as an extension of their own. I very much hope that we can be part of your firm’s Taiwanese success story too.
