  • Taiwan’s economy faces major challenges as both industries and investment shift overseas

    Taiwan''s exports are expected to shrink this year, leading many to forecast economic growth of around 2 percent. While the government says poor economic data is mainly due to international conditions, some believe a more serious industrial transformation is taking place.

  • Taiwan’s remaining glassmakers get creative to stay in business

    Taiwan''s glass industry had its heyday in the 1960s, when nearly all the world''s Christmas lights were made here. But in the 1990s, China started to lure local glass makers across the strait with promises of lower labor costs and more room to expand. Now, Taiwan''s remaining glass factories are turning toward creative industries for growth. Here''s our Sunday in-depth report.This factory in Zhunan, Miaoli County, is so quiet, it’s as if time has stopped inside. The factory owner isn’t lazy; there simply aren’t any orders to fill.

The Tourism Bureau is already signed on to contribute NT$20 million of the NT$45 million budget to the annual show, and the Finance Ministry is expected to pick up some of the remainder.

    Taipei’s Chien-cheng Circle, once a bustling food market and a city landmark in the Datong district of Taipei, is now facing the possibility of a third shutdown following Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je’s announcement he would not renew the contract with the operator of the facility next July. The venue was closed twice previously due to a rent dispute and a fire with business remaining sluggish after each reopening. Braised pork rice and Taiwanese pork pottage soup are famous dishes at Taipei’s Chien-Cheng Circle. A major fire led to the rebuilding of the site but the poor design of the new facility led many established eateries to move their business elsewhere.

Taiwan''s exports are expected to shrink this year, leading many to forecast economic growth of around 2 percent. While the government says poor economic data is mainly due to international conditions, some believe a more serious industrial transformation is taking place. This factory at the Changhua Coastal Industrial Park produces synthetic leather. Many of its long-term downstream customers have moved away from Taiwan, making business increasingly difficult.Chen Yung-nengXing He Industry GM At the outset, we shouldn’t encourage them to move but to instead upgrade their technology and production. The government hasn’t been very effective in cultivating this industry, so many middle and downstream companies have rushed to Southeast Asia or China to survive. Li Mou-dian Xing He Industry ChairmanWith the domestic market shrinking, downstream manufacturers have left, causing a decline in the demand for synthetic leather. This means we have to dedicate more human resources to developing foreign markets.The latest case indicating Taiwan''s industrial shift is the Formosa Plastics Group, which plans to invest US$15 billion overseas in the next three years. In the past, some 75 percent of this company’s investment was in Taiwan, though this could fall to 20 percent. Kenneth LinNTU Economics Professor In the past, capital that moved overseas was mostly SMEs in the manufacturing industry. Now, it’s big companies with more capital at stake. When the companies move overseas, so do their investments.The central bank chose the anniversary of President Ma Ying-jeou’s seventh term of office to announce that the first quarter of the year saw a record high net outflow of funds.Wang Jiann-chyuan Chung-Hua Institution for Economic Research Insurance companies need to generate a fixed rate of 4 percent each year. Taiwan doesn’t have many good financial products, so they invest tens of billions of US dollars overseas, which leads to this account deficit. This is the main reason behind this problem.Taiwan’s failure to keep money in the country is compounded by the fact that foreign investment is also unlikely to be attracted to Taiwan.Wang Jiann-chyuan Chung-Hua Institution for Economic Research In 2013, we only attracted foreign direct investment of about US$3.7 billion while Singapore attracted US$63.7 billion. This is a major warning sign. Among Asian countries, our foreign direct investment only surpasses North Korea and Pakistan. In the past, we compared with the United Kingdom, United States, Singapore and South Korea, but now we only compare with Pakistan and North Korea. This indicates that Taiwan''s investment environment is actually getting worse. Taking a tour of this factory, Xing He Industry Chairman Li Mou-dian says the only way to overcome these challenges is innovation.Li Mou-dianXing He Industry ChairmanThis is an example of traditional PVC material. This is our newly developed environmentally friendly TPU material. When you produce PVC, there is a strong smell. TPU is odorless and non-toxic.Li said it took years of research and development to create this environmentally friendly synthetic leather. PVC’s resistance to decomposition as well as the noxious gases it produces when incinerated make it environmentally unfriendly.Li Mou-dian Xing He Industry ChairmanThe most important aspect of TPU is the fact that it’s environmentally friendly. We managed to make it decompose in little more than 10 years. PVC can’t dissolve, so it can last for 10,000 years, leading to many environmental problems. TPU, in addition to conforming with environmental trends, can also resist cold temperatures and is easily malleable, making it preferable to PVC. Despite these advantages, Li faces many problems. Li Mou-dianXing He Industry ChairmanWhen we export to other countries, we face the burden of paying extra tariffs that other countries don’t have to pay. Not being included in some free trade agreements is a hindrance to our business. Wang Jiann-chyuan Chung-Hua Institution for Economic ResearchFirst of all, (Taiwan’s) market is too small. Secondly, there have been too few free trade agreements. Taiwan must find a ways to use TPP and RCEP to gradually increase our reach. Although there are many challenges to overcome in the future, Li hopes that he can do enough to be able to remain in Taiwan.Li Mou-dian Xing He Industry ChairmanI think industries establishing deep roots in Taiwan require consensus on the part of everyone. If future issues are not resolved, it could create a lot of pressure for everyone.Kenneth LinNTU Economics DepartmentThose companies that have remained in Taiwan this long and have continued to survive have pursued a unique development path. I just want to say the government should not ignore these companies. Their ability to endure doesn’t mean they need special care. We spend so much time thinking about creating ...

Taiwan''s glass industry had its heyday in the 1960s, when nearly all the world''s Christmas lights were made here. But in the 1990s, China started to lure local glass makers across the strait with promises of lower labor costs and more room to expand. Now, Taiwan''s remaining glass factories are turning toward creative industries for growth. Here''s our Sunday in-depth report.This factory in Zhunan, Miaoli County, is so quiet, it’s as if time has stopped inside. The factory owner isn’t lazy; there simply aren’t any orders to fill. Chiu Wen-huGlass Factory General ManagerWork is stopped because of the lack of orders, so now we take winter and summer breaks. It wasn’t like this before. We used to get tens of millions of NT dollars in orders a month, about NT$20 million NT$ worth, and we would work overtime to ship the orders out.With over 50 years of experience in glassmaking, Chiu Wen-hu has personally experienced the decline of Taiwan’s glass industry. At its peak during the 1970s, there were over 200 glass factories in Zhunan alone, making everything from lampshades to glassware while building up Taiwan’s foreign exchange reserves. But today’s domestic glassmakers aren’t nearly as competitive as they once were. This small factory employing only 7 workers is one of many in the area that are looking for ways to bring back business. Factory manager Lin Yao-nong has turned to glassblowing, making individual artworks to sell at a higher price per unit.Lin Yao-nongGlassblowerIf we were still making these patterns and blowing these simple things as we did before in that business climate, we would absolutely not be competitive. But this type of craft has a definite artistic element.Lin is proud of his glassblowing craft. Having divided the required tasks among his team members, he can take glowing red molten glass that’s been heated to more than a thousand degrees Celsius, and in a matter of moments blow and shape it into a carp. Pieces like this carp can be sold on the market for thousands of NT dollars.Lin has resisted repeated attempts by Chinese businesses to recruit him, because he knows that the key factor in the decline of Taiwan’s glass industry was the relocation of local firms to China, which then used lower prices to undercut the factories that stayed in Taiwan. Lin Yao-nongGlassblowerBusinesspeople will only look at how much money they’re making. They’ll move production to wherever costs are lower. And what happens when they move? The factory goes with them, and so do their managers, all of which helps drive the industry in that other place. Meanwhile, the industry in Taiwan goes into decline. Cheng Ming-fan is a second-generation member of Taiwan’s glass industry, and is himself a fan of glass art. But his future in the industry is uncertain, given the gap in competitiveness between glassmakers in Taiwan and China.Cheng Ming-fanCreative ProfessionalMy father has a glass business, and I think I should first carry that on. Maybe it’s really past its time, I know, and I don’t have any way to reverse that. I want to go into the field of education, where there might be a chance for me to spread my glassmaking dream. And maybe that might help a new generation (of glassmakers) get back on their feet.Today, Cheng Ming-fan went to find Lin Yao-nong, with news that the blown-glass products they had developed together were selling well. Cheng wanted to build on that success by submitting another order and discussing the possibility of diversifying their production. After a chat, they decided to increase the size of their water bottle and design a handle for it.These students in the Department of Arts and Design at National Tsing Hua University are in the middle of a glassblowing class. Their university is one of the few in Taiwan that offers courses in glass arts, but compared to the old industry system of teachers and pupils, their course has a much greater emphasis on the materials and the science behind the craft.Hsiao Ming-tun, the head of the Tsing Hua University Arts and Design Department, approaches glassmaking from a scientific perspective, out of the belief that it offers the potential to return Taiwan’s glass industry to its former glory.Prof. Hsiao Ming-tunNTHU Arts and Design Dept. HeadIn the near future we may see the emergence of a new industry around recycling and reuse. Pieces of glass big and small can be ground into absorptive silica sand to make things like these miniature bonsai landscapes. Returning to the old model in which we mass-produced glass products for export, if Taiwan becomes a major exporter of silica sand, this stuff can be turned into a whole industry.Most of what used to be the country’s glass industry has already relocated to China. But despite a host of structural challenges, Taiwan still boasts a number of creative talents in glassblowing and manufacturing, who are using the...

Ko Wen-jeTaipei MayorWe estimate that artificial or grass surfaces for the soccer fields will cost NT$1.4 billion. This number shows the high costs associated with holding a major sporting event.Since taking office Ko has repeatedly stated his belief that the Universiade is too expensive. His decision to directly intervene in oversight of the games has exposed, or resulted in, a series of problems. In a way, Ko feels that he’s blocking progress.The money being spent on the Universiade led Ko to reflect on his campaign costs exceeding original estimates. He says that without a change in election culture, the close relationship between politicians and business will never change.Ko Wen-jeTaipei MayorThere’s no way to reduce the high cost of elections. If your election costs are high, you need to find funding. Everyone knows donations come from enterprises. Everybody also knows that if you’re given a large amount of money, in the future you won’t be overly critical of the person who made the donation.Ko’s idea is reminiscent of how there is no such thing as a free lunch. Businesses that offer donations during election season will expect a return. Ko says he will need more time to understand the complex web of relations that is behind preparations for the Universiade.

The Finance Ministry today gave assurances that the popular New Year’s fireworks show at Taipei 101 would continue this year, after rumors that 101’s owners were considering canceling it over funding concerns. The Tourism Bureau is already signed on to contribute NT$20 million of the NT$45 million budget to the annual show, and the Finance Ministry is expected to pick up some of the remainder. A lack of funds may force Taipei 101 to cancel its New Year’s fireworks show after 12 consecutive years.Michael Liu Taipei 101 SpokesmanBecause the response from local business sponsors hasn’t been quite what we expected, we went directly to multinational corporations in Taiwan to ask for assistance. Even then, we didn’t get many positive responses.In past years, Taipei 101 has spent about NT$45 million on each show. The country’s Tourism Bureau has chipped in NT$20 million of that for advertising rights at the event, with the owners of 101 drumming up the rest of the money. But a sluggish economy this year has complicated 101’s funding drive.Michael Liu Taipei 101 SpokesmanOf course there have been a few people at our board meetings who have raised the possibility of government assistance. It’s a bit difficult for corporations alone to shoulder the burden, so putting a stop to the show is not out of the question.The businesses in Xinyi district near 101 are expected to be among those most affected if the fireworks show doesn’t go ahead this year. AlexRestaurant ChefThere’s usually a flood of reservations for the time around the show, and we’re sometimes booked up to 80 percent full in advance, but without any news of the fireworks show this year, reservations are pretty few and far between. Su Jain-rong Deputy Finance Minister We will put everything into figuring out a way to resolve this funding issue.Finance Ministry officials promised to help Taipei 101 raise the funds needed for the fireworks display, so that the show can continue for a 13th consecutive year.

Taipei’s Chien-cheng Circle, once a bustling food market and a city landmark in the Datong district of Taipei, is now facing the possibility of a third shutdown following Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je’s announcement he would not renew the contract with the operator of the facility next July. The venue was closed twice previously due to a rent dispute and a fire with business remaining sluggish after each reopening. Braised pork rice and Taiwanese pork pottage soup are famous dishes at Taipei’s Chien-Cheng Circle. A major fire led to the rebuilding of the site but the poor design of the new facility led many established eateries to move their business elsewhere. The building is glass-enclosed and it is poorly ventilated. There are not many seats either.When the Chien-cheng Circle was renovated into a gourmet pavilion 13 years ago, many famous eateries left the premises, resulting in its first shutdown. Later, the venue was closed after its reopening in 2009 due to rent disputes. With business not picking up three years after its reopening it now faces its third closure next year. Ko Wen-jeTaipei MayorThe lease is due next July. It will take another six months to remodel because the venue is poorly ventilated and cannot be used properly. We plan to reopen it on Jan 1, 2017. Tapei’s Chien-cheng Circle was built during the Japanese colonial era with many residents having fond memories of the building. Unfortunately, renovation stripped many of its original features. Now it’s up to the new mayor’s administration to revive the historic site.
