Taiwan has made a concerted effort since 2008 to internationalise its capital markets by encouraging foreign companies and Taiwanese-owned businesses based overseas to list locally on the Taiwan Stock Exchange or the Gre-Tai Securities Market through an initial public offering (IPO) or a secondary listing via Taiwan depositary receipts.

The IPO application process is clear and transparent, with a predictable timeline and outcome. Also, Taiwan has relaxed restrictions on the qualifications of foreign issuers and the use of raised funds, which can now be remitted for investment in any offshore territory, including China. As commerce and investment across the Taiwan Strait flourish, more and more companies will be making Taiwan their first choice for a successful share listing.
