Taiwan (23.6 million inhabitants) has experienced dramatic growth following a huge increase in foreign direct investment in the 1960s. Taiwan now holds one of the world’s largest foreign exchange reserves. Technology and innovation boost an already strong economy and the country’s largest urban area, Taipei, has been at the centre of rapid economic development. Taiwan welcomes Dutch entrepreneurs to co-create and collaborate in developing modern, smart and sustainable cities. Important themes include healthcare, food, urban mobility, infrastructure, environment and safety.
