  • 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. 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.

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 ...

The opening and closing ceremonies for the 2017 Universiade have been moved from Taipei Dome to Taipei Municipal Track and Field Stadium. Mayor Ko Wen-je criticized the work schedule on Taipei Dome as being unreliable and not leaving enough time for interior furnishings and decoration. The contractor, Farglory Land Development, said it regretted the city’s decision. Concerns about the completion of Taipei Dome over the next two years led the Taipei City government to resort to a backup plan which involves moving both the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2017 Universiade to a nearby track and field stadium. Ko Wen-je (June 22) Taipei MayorTaipei Municipal Track and Field Stadium already held the Deaflympics, and many of its facilities have been upgraded over the past few years. As for Taipei Dome construction, when you add interior furnishings it’s just too unreliable.The move won’t come without a tradeoff as Taipei Dome has a planned capacity of 40,000 spectators and Taipei Municipal Track and Field Stadium can only accommodate 20,000.City officials said there was a precedent for such a move. Chou Li-fangTaipei Deputy Mayor Original preparations for the 2011 Universiade in Shenzhen included a 70,000 seat venue, though it was later moved to a venue that only held 20,000 seats.City officials plan to wait until after the Gwangju Universiade this July before applying to the governing committee to change venues. This could lead to the possibility that Taipei Dome won’t even hold a single event. Chou Li-fangTaipei Deputy Mayor At the moment, judging by the progress on (Taipei Dome), the probability is quite slim.Jacky YangFarglory SpokesmanDuring the bidding process, the Universiade chairman visited Farglory to be briefed on the sports venue and the Taipei Dome’s sporting facilities. He gave a good evaluation. We regret the decision to move to another site. Farglory also took the opportunity to respond to Ko’s criticism that it is unreliable by saying it could complete the project if given enough time.

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.
