Taiwanese businesses are returning to Tainan and have invested more than NTD 100 billion in local industries. Innolux Corporation's local investment application, which has just been approved by Invest Taiwan Office, will bring in NTD 53.712 billion and create 1,130 job opportunities in Tainan. So far 24 investment applications submitted by returning Taiwanese businesses have been approved.  The total investment amount will reach approximately NTD 111.131 billion and create 9,579 job opportunities. Two applications still in review or discussion stages.

The government is actively improving overall investment environment and industry-related policies, and developing investment targets. They also plan to roll out simplified measures to speed up administrative review procedures for companies applying to set up factories here to encourage returning Taiwanese businesses and other enterprises to invest in Tainan. Applicants can enjoy prioritized reviewing; and in case of incomplete documentation, applicants just need to provide the lacking documents instead of having their entire application rejected.
