Measuring the success of Taiwan business

Despite the recent geopolitical tension across the Strait, the combined pre-tax profit of TWSE-listed firms again grew at a significant 24.55 percent year-on-year to NT$2.31 trillion in the first half of this year. Building upon this momentum, the TWSE is delighted to be hosting two investment forums this September, with ESG champions and the Taiwan Innovation Board (“TIB”) as the two main themes.


From Sept 12 to 16, the TWSE will organize the “Post Pandemic World: Exploring Taiwan Best-in-Class” event jointly with the Taiwan Institute of Directors and IPR Advisors. As the TWSE and Taiwan Institute of Directors have long shared the same goal of promoting sound corporate governance, the event invites large players and SMEs from various industries with exceptional ESG performance, creating opportunities for global investors to explore their investment value. The event also features two panels, in-person and virtual, presented by the TWSE, Yang Ming Marine and leading industry experts to share their insights on the ESG advances of the Taiwan capital market and its implications.


The “11th Taiwan CEO Week on Air” event will take place online from Sept 19 to 30. Being the longest-running investment campaign hosted by the TWSE and QIC, this quality event offers a great chance for value seekers to build new relationships with game changers and innovators in Taiwan’s semiconductor, electronics, biotech and financial industries. Meanwhile, as the TWSE has just halved the qualification criteria to benefit TIB investors, a panel on Sept 21 will give an in-depth analysis on the new measure and discuss the TIB prospects and challenges ahead.
