Introduction for Taichung Export Processing Zone

  • Introduction for Taichung Export Processing Zone

    In January of 1965,the government of the Republic of China declared the establishment of an "Export Processing Zone" and set up regulations for its management. The four proposed targets of the EPZ were: (1) to promote investment, (2) to expand exports, (3) to introduce new techniques, and (4) to create new jobs.

    In order to achieve a balanced development of Taiwan's industries and to retard the outward movement of Central Taiwan's population, the government of the Republic of China established the Taichung Export Processing Zone (originally the Tantze Industria Zone.)

    The Tantze Industrial Zone was a land area of 26 hectares which had formerly been the Tantze Branch of the Taiwan Sugar Corporation, under the jurisdiction of the Taiwan Land Development Company. This area was taken over by the Kaohsiung Export Processing Zone Administration in September, 1969, and set up as the Taichung Export Processing Zone Preparatory Group. Construction of the building was completed in March, 1971.

    All the standard and self-designed factory buildings were sold or rented in July, 1978. The Administration requisitioned and purchased an additional three hectares of land in August, 1983, bringing the total to 26 hectares. This increased land area made possible the accommodation of more export enterprises and was provided for new investors.

    One of the greatest advantage of this processing zone is its location and transportation, with Chung-Shan and Chung-Fong Road to its east, Ya-Tang Road to its south, and Fengyuan, Daya interchanges connect directly to National Highway No 1 and Taichung-Changhua Expressway.
