New Taipei City has long been a center for industry and commerce, with nearly 250,000 registered businesses, and more than 20,000 factories in the area. Many companies have chosen New Taipei City as their base in order to benefit from the operational advantages, policy incentives and infrastructure developments the area offers. Close proximity to industry partners has led to industry clustering and economies of scale. The technology sector is well-represented, with biotechnology pharmaceuticals, information technology, optics and chemical materials being particularly well-developed in New Taipei City.

Developments in the biotechnology industry are now driving the next wave of integration and innovation in this industry belt. Representative enterprises include Acer, Wistron, Garmin, Chicony, Nanya Technology Corporation, and Inventec.

Northern Taiwan Technology Corridor

The industry clustering effect has led to the formation of a “Northern Taiwan Technology Corridor” that connects New Taipei City’s Xizhi Technology Park with Neihu Technology Park, Nangang Software Park, Hsinchu Science Park, the Taipei Port Free Trade Zone and Taoyuan Aerotroplis. The convenience and competitive advantages created by this technology corridor for manufacturing, trade and transportation have spurred expansion of the area’s technology industry.
