Alaska and Taiwan

  • Building on Strong Trade Ties

    In 2015, Alaska’s exports to Taiwan reached $104 million, making Taiwan Alaska’s 7th largest export market in Asia. Alaskan companies have substantial opportunities to expand their business and cooperation with Taiwan in a number of various industries including those in energy, mining, fishery, forestry and tourism.

  • Growing the Trade Ties through TATICC and Beyond

    Taiwan and Alaska established the Taiwan-Alaska Trade & Investment Cooperation Council (TATICC) in 2004. This platform can be utilized to enhance trade and promote joint ventures between Alaska and Taiwan.

    Over a hundred Taiwan and Alaskan business representatives attended the Council’s second annual meeting in Girdwood, Alaska in September 2005. Additionally, key sectors such as tourism have attracted the interests of Taiwanese airline companies, including China Airlines and EVA Air which established operation offices in Anchorage, Alaska.

  • Bringing New Trade and Investment Home

    The fishing, food manufacturing, transportation equipment, and lumber industry as well as many other sectors important to Alaska’s economy poise to benefit from partnerships with Taiwan. These collaborative opportunities create significant potential for Taiwanese enterprises to boost their investment in Alaska thereby creating jobs in Alaska.

  • Opening Up A Region of Opportunity

    Taiwan serves as an ideal partner for U.S. business in Asia. Taiwan has complete industrial supply chains, high concentration of industrial clusters, and a consolidated manufacturer base. The World Economic Forum ranked Taiwan's industrial cluster infrastructure first in the world in its "World Competitiveness Report 2014" for the ninth consecutive year. This is reflected in Taiwan's comprehensive protection of intellectual property rights, sound legal system, and modern infrastructure.

    Furthermore, the Economic Cooperation Framework Agreement (ECFA) signed between Taiwan and Mainland China in 2010 has opened up opportunities in Mainland China. Businesses can now collaborate with innovative Taiwanese companies and leverage ECFA to utilize Taiwan as a gateway to Mainland China and other fast-growing Asian markets.
