The government has been aggressively promoting its integrated export policy for information and communication systems, looking to create an export market blue ocean for integrated information and communication systems and to increase the diversity and alternativeness of Taiwan’s industrial output. Through localized technical options, export of integrated technology turnkey projects, market cultivation and trust building with local partners through resident site staff deployment, the goal is to highlight the success of overseas information and communication applications, and to increase Taiwan’s global visibility.
As technical adviser and mentor of the industry promotion platform, the Institute of Industry Information has guided 10 manufacturers in the accomplishment of 15 export schemes in 8 countries, creating business opportunities worth NTD200 million. In 2015, III will expand its scope of international business to include South American regions such as Peru and Paraguay. Through international collaborative projects, III will enable Taiwanese ICT companies to provide customized services in regional markets across the globe.
Aid provided by Taiwan to its diplomatic allies in Central America and the Caribbean in the past have largely encompassed the aspects of agriculture, medicine and digital divide mitigation. III has incorporated support from the diplomatic system to upgrade viable methods of cooperation that will now include practical ICT projects (including electronic official document systems, server room installation, and information security), which will provide direct solutions to political and administrative issues in ally nations. III will continue to promote globalization by bringing business partners into the global market, cultivating international talent, and broadening the industry’s global vision, all of which will facilitate future exports of integrated systems and developments in international business operations.
III will replicate this successful model and apply it to emerging markets and other countries to effectively reduce the marketing cost of ICT solutions. III also hopes to sustain industry growth based on existing foundations, and enable Taiwan’s domestic providers to step up onto the international stage as leaders of the industry.
