Taiwan Government has recently budgeted NT$420 billion for the “Forward-Looking Infrastructure Program” for the next 4 years. As local suppliers are unable to independently complete all aspects of the projects (such as mass transit, energy and water), there are plenty of the opportunities for foreign contractors to take roles during the upcoming implementation of the Program.
Our firm will publish a series of Newsletters for the Program. Please click here to read more.
