Taiwan is unique in its blend of western and eastern cultures. A modern, open society with a democratically elected government and western institutions, Taiwan also maintains the traditions, language and culture of the world’s oldest civilization. The ancient art and science of acupuncture and Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) are still widely studied and practiced in Taiwan, as well in China and throughout much of Asia.
Taiwan is perfectly positioned as both an entry point into Asia, as well as a regional hub. From a location standpoint as well as culturally, Taiwan has access advantages to the most dynamic and fastest growing economies of the Asia Pacific region. The country has international airports with world-class facilities, and deepwater harbors and ports. It is well served by direct international links to nations around the world, and many Asian destinations are just a short, direct flight away.
