It is a democracy with limited international recognition. Despite taking advantage of many relations with other countries.

Some of the benefits for doing businesses in Taiwan are the fact that it is a major platform for business with China; it has liberalization of banking, insurance and securities sectors; offshore center for the renminbi (RMB); high levels of consumer disposable income. Taiwan is also considered a hub for the Asia Pacific region with a skilled workforce, abundant capital, and excellent innovation capabilities.
These were some of the reasons that Competir Internacional has target this country, consolidating its approach to Asians markets.
