TAIPEI, Taiwan Jan 3 (NNN-Bernama) -- Taiwan, in its quest to stay economically strong amidst heightened competition in the 21st century, is banking on its New Southbound Policy (NSP) to help forge new and mutually beneficial cooperation with 18 countries in Asia and eventually create a stronger sense of economic community...
Taiwan, measuring about 36,000 sq km or roughly equivalent to the size of the Netherlands, is today the world’s largest supplier of six industrial products and services such as foundry services in high technology, integrated circuit packaging and testing, high-grade bicycles, fiberglass fabrics, functional textiles and green algae.
In terms of functional textiles, Hermin Textile with a 40-year history operating in Taipei and Tainan County, has been producing new types of fabrics to meet new demands from the many top retail brands in the market, said its marketing manager, Courtney Cruzan.
"We have put in a lot of effort to produce functional textiles like breathable and water repellent fabrics that can repel liquids on the outside while allowing body moisture vapour to evaporate through the fabrics, thus allowing the wearer to feel comfortable throughout," she said.
The above is just one example that the Taiwanese government has been encouraging its industries, backed by leading edge R&D facilities at three major science parks in Hsinchu, Tainan and Taichung, to innovate and produce more value-added products and services to bring greater vitality to its economy and global trade.
