Investment Opportunity

Central Government Development Plans

Starting in 2016, the central government implemented the "Digital Nation and Innovative Economic Development Plan" (DIGI+ Plan), by launching the "5+2" incentive program to provide over NT$5.83 trillion in funding to support innovative industries involved in green technology, Asia's Silicon Valley, smart machinery, medical biotechnology, national defense, aviation, innovative agriculture, and circular economy. The program is to promotes inter-departmental and inter-ministerial cooperation and industrial innovation.

Five Inventive Programs


Green Energy Technology Industry

The program aims to create a green energy technology industry ecology, combining precision machinery, the Internet of Things, composite materials, ICT, and domestic green energy demand. It will support the development of the offshore wind farming and solar power industries, and help penetrate into the global market to create the next rising-star industry.

Asia’s Silicon Valley

Connect well-known core technology communities from all around the world to be the first to grasp the next-generation industries of the future, as well as become an innovation and startup development base for the youth of the Asia-Pacific.

Innovative Smart Machinery Industry

Upgrade from precision machinery to smart machinery; become one of the top five manufacturing nations and one of the top three export countries in the world; transform/upgrade, create job opportunities, expand exports, resolve social issues; become the "capital of global smart machinery," drive the development of the central region.

Biotech Industry

Elevate the level of "talent, funding, intellectual property, legal environment, consolidation of resources, and selection of effective targets" through connecting to the world and consolidating local innovation clusters; create an innovative "Asia-Pacific Biotech Pharmaceutical Industry R&D Center."

Defense industry

Increase the self-sufficiency of the defense industry and defensive combat capabilities; stabilize domestic demand, encourage technological upgrades and system integration, and assist in expanding into the international market; strengthen industrial communities' effectiveness and increase employment opportunities in order to start a positive cycle of civil-military cooperation.

Taipei City Government Development Plans

Under the "5+2" Program, the city government wants to transform the Nankang Software Park into an "Asia-Pacific Biotech Pharmaceutical Industry R&D Center." An estimated NT$11 billion will be injected into the development of a key research and development base for medical biotechnology. In response to the central government plans, the Taipei City government has initiated many projects to promote industrial development.

Neihu Technology Park 2.0 Project

The Neihu Technology Park is already home to over 4,000 companies, with around 130,000 corporate employees and an annual production value of NT$3.9 trillion. With the advent of the new economy, Neihu Technology Park is under pressure to innovate and transform. Using Neihu Technology Park as the core, the Taipei City Government will expand to six major city-owned properties including the Dawan South Section Industrial Zone, Neihu 5th Redevelopment Zone, and Luzhou Village Industrial Zone; these areas will be used to plan innovative corporate R&D as well as new industries. Through the integration of innovative industries and the Park's existing foundation, new opportunities can be created which will drive the overall industry to connect with global industry trends.

Nangang Biotechnology Hub

The Taipei City government will cooperate with Academia Sinica to combine Academia Sinica's strong foundation in research, the National Biotechnology Park's development of new drugs, and the Taipei Biotechnology Industry Development Hub's clinical experiments. They will bring Nankang Software Park, Taiwan High Speed Rail, and Nangang transportation together to connect to the Hsinchu Biomedical Science Park and drive the biotechnology industry. The annual production value is estimated to be NT$50 billion. Nangang will be the main driving force of the biotech industry; it will establish a world-class biotechnology industry corridor.

Beitou Shilin Technology Park

The Beitou Shilin Technology Park is located at the junction of Shilin and Beitou. The park covers the sides of Sungai River, including the south side of Sungai River, Chengde Road east and west, and north of Sungai, Wenlin North Road, Chengde Road and the area along the west side of Chengde Road and the area along the Keelung River, it is around 194.29 hectares in all. The Beitou Shilin Technology Park is the third industrial park after the Neihu Technology Park and the Nangang software park. New technology sectors such as biotechnology, media, information, electronics, and communications will be introduced there. It will give priority of the integration of “R&D Innovation,” “Technology Application,” and “Value Added Service” for Taipei City in the next decade.

Shezidao Development Project

The Shezidao Development Project will occupy 83.3 hectares total, including the Central Ecological Park. The Taipei City government plans the Shezidao development project as an experimental site, shaping an innovative society that supports both a smart city and industrial development. The Shezidao Development Project’s prime design concept is the green development of ecohydrology with the theme of cyclical sustainability. This includes cyclical economy, cyclical energy, and cyclical ecology. The smart Shezidao Development Project will include smart schools, smart disaster prevention, smart power network, smart transportation and smart agriculture. Shezidao will become a smart, sustainable park, a role model of the mutual compatibility of technology and the environment.
