The European Economic and Trade Office in Taiwan (EETOT) said in a press release yesterday it will next month publish a handbook on investing in the EU.
The handbook aims to give investors a better understanding of the investment climate and trade and investment opportunities in the world's largest economy, EETOT officials said.
EETOT said Taiwan is the ninth-largest supplier of goods to the EU and the fifth-largest Asian trading partner of the EU, behind China, Japan, South Korea and India.
The amount that the EU imports from Taiwan equals about 15 percent of what it imports from China, the EETOT officials said.
The European Commission established a presence in Taiwan on March 10, 2003.
Noting that there is still ample room for Taiwan to improve in terms of investment in Europe, EETOT officials said investing in any of the 27 member countries of the EU means gaining a foothold in an immense market with a total population of 500 million.
Meanwhile, EETOT has recently revamped its Web site to provide quicker and more user-friendly access to EU information in Taiwan, a newsletter issued by the trade office last month said.
The newsletter said visitors seeking information about EU-Taiwan relations, studying in Europe or the Erasmus Mundus Program should visit the Web site at www.deltwn.ec.europa.eu.
