With many new startups choosing Taiwan as the developmental base, Taiwan provides an entrepreneurial environment that balances international trade and domestic demand for the new startups. Director Zhuang also expects that the biotech talents and biotechnology industries will gather their strengths and integrate their resources to focus on niche products and take part in international exhibition & business matching activities, so that the biomedical industry in Taiwan could expand its business territory to the rest of the world.
