  • More than half a century ago, Taiwan was facing capital shortage, lack of techniques and labor excess. Therefore, Taiwan (R.O.C.) government established the first Export Processing Zone (EPZ) in 1966. EPZ was Taiwan’s first special economic zone and the first free zone in the world, which combines the characteristics of free trade zone and industrial park. The Export Processing Zone Administration (EPZA) offers full-range services to the companies in the zones.

    Over the decades, The EPZs have reached the four major goals such as expanding international trade, attracting industrial investments, bringing in latest technology, and increasing job vacancies. The EPZs excellently contributed in leading our country’s industrial development and created world-famous “Taiwan’s Economic Miracle!”
